Canvas LMS Pricing
Why is a Canvas LMS competitor such as Acorn LMS, telling you Canvas’ pricing? Well. We know how damn hard it can be to find the information.
Canvas LMS pricing (external source):
“It offers additional perks and features for business users of Canvas who use it regularly. The annual fee is $299 per year per user”.
Canvas LMS cost (their own pricing page):
Well this was a real treasure hunt for us. We searched everything from canvas learning management system cost, to canvas learning management system pricing, to canvas lms cost, then canvas lms pricing and finally canvas lms pricing plans. And nothing. We spent a while on the Instructure website (home of Canvas LMS) and they have no pricing page, you get the option to book a demo or sign up as a free individual.

See what our customers have to say about us…
Acorn provided a seamless transition for what seemed like a mountain of work. The support team went above and beyond in ensuring that our needs were met. The product has enabled us to sell our content online, opening a whole new stream of revenue. We haven’t looked back.
Manager, Development and Diploma
Trainisiting over to Acorn has been great as we have been able to significantly cut down on administration activities which acorn now do automatically for us. Having Acorn integrate and connect with other systems that we use is amazing. Our end-users (our students) have found it easy to use. As administrators in the system we have always been supported by technical and support staff. Overall a fantastic product.
With the onset of COVID we needed to ensure our staff were able undertake training online in order to meet our ongoing compliance requirements. Blake was a pleasure to deal with outlining our options and presenting multiple customisations to meeting our reporting needs. We had previously delivered this training face to face and it’s safe to say we won’t be going back!! Our team can now complete the training wherever, whenever and with the automated completion reporting it saves me a tonne of paperwork!! Thanks team!! – Aimee
Saved me a lot of time and allowed my business to scale more quickly.
Would not recommend any other LMS other than Acorn! Hands down the best system we have ever come across – it is so simple to use, it’s convenient and has all the features and tools you need to efficiently run a training course. Josh has been and continues to be of great support to us, always willing to answer any questions and provides amazing customer service! Highly recommend, you will not be disappointed.

Always a little nervous investing money into things like this. However was very happy with what we paid for and has improved our business!
so pleased with the outcome of the website. Josh was fantastic through the whole process. The attention to detail and service has been second to none. I am so grateful for choosing Acorn. I highly recommend!
The Acorn team have provided an experience that no other LMS can offer. We have been a client for several years and our users love the new platform. The support team set the bar in customer service. I can not recommend Acorn any higher. Massive kudos to Josh for all his help!
I’ve been pleased overall. It allowed us to develop something quickly and efficiently. The product is currently in use and is being received well.
Was a bit sceptical off switching to another LMS until I tried Acorn out. Previous systems have been buggy, glitchy and to top it off, have terrible customer service/help. Conversely, Acorn has been extremely user friendly with a wonderful support team led by Josh! The team at Acorn allow for a quick install and migration – it was extremely smooth in our case. Perfect for workplace planning and training courses. Would definitely recommend, for a refreshing new system that can cater to all your LMS needs.
We are unique as a Recruitment company that also offers industry training. Acorn allows us to get our point of difference out into the market and also helped us “pivot” through Covid by enabling us to offer customised learning packages for our client companies.
Amazing tool & service! It was difficult sifting through the seemingly dozens of LMS platforms out there – we must have done a demo with at least 6 or 7. Acorn impressed us with how easy-to-use it appeared, and we’ve not been disappointed in our decision. Their support is incredible, and helps being in the same timezone (lots of others were either US or UK office hours which wasn’t very convenient for us).
BOOK A DEMO:
"“We had the system up and running within 6 weeks. More than two thirds of our employees visit Acorn every month. And Acorn punches above their weight with the quality of their LMS system compared to much larger competitors”"
PS. Why we believe LMS pricing transparency is important, and what it tells you about the experience to come
By not publishing pricing, we believe it makes it all about the seller versus what you, as a potential buyer, need to do in your due diligence.
The counter argument Canvas LMS could make is:
- We offer bespoke pricing dependent on use cases, volume of users and integration requirements.
- Purchasing a LMS is an enterprise decision with a great level of complexity that needs to be scoped out.
- We want to ensure we give you the best possible price to ensure good customer ROI.
In reality, the difference between companies like us here at Acorn LMS that offer LMS cost transparency and companies like Canvas LMS that don’t offer pricing transparency is our chosen sales models.
And it’s important to know the difference between them, because this is the experience you will get:
We’re buyers too, heck we’re humans too, and we simply choose to publish pricing as it’s the right thing to do by you.
And the question we put to you is this, if they start the experience with lack of transparency, what will the relationship look like ongoing?
