Canvas Selected as our next LMS

LMS Selection Report and Announcement (PDF)

Results tabulated from students and faculty involved in pilot testing has shown Canvas to be the highest rated/most preferred LMS. A contract has been signed with the creators of Canvas, Instructure, Inc. The timeline has since been revised with the goal of moving all courses to Canvas and discontinuing use of Blackboard CE8 by May 9, 2011. Both LMSs will be available for teaching and testing during Spring Semester 2011. All Spring Semester 2011 courses will be automatically created in both Blackboard CE8 and Canvas complete with student enrollments, allowing instructors to teach using either LMS. All old courses from the Blackboard CE8 system will also be migrated in bulk to the Canvas system.
