What do you dislike?
The whole process of adopting canvas has not been as easy as we expected at the beginning, it's a bit difficult and it takes some time, going from conventional learning platforms, to a somewhat advanced system like this, something that has been a little difficult is to move the entire system of notes, which we still managed on paper, to this virtual platform, it is somewhat complex, you must have some available time, outside working hours, to be able to learn to use the tool correctly, since it takes a few days to adapt completely to it.
