Canvas TransitionCanvas is here - join us!
Since we began our official transition to Canvas in autumn 2016, we have come a long way! The graph above shows the percentage of all courses using an LMS taught in each system per quarter. By spring 2017, we had 21% of all courses taught in Canvas between our early adopter units and faculty who proactively chose to start teaching with Canvas. Summer 2017 marks our first quarter where all for-credit courses must be taught in Canvas, and the number of courses requested has already exceeded the number of courses in Chalk for summer 2016. The number of published courses for summer 2017 will continue to increase as the quarter progresses. As we start August, we have 20% of expected autumn 2017 courses already created in Canvas.
For more information about how we chose Canvas as our next learning management system, you can read about it on the project background page.
Summer Quarter 2017 Metrics
We have officially surpassed the number of LMS course sites for summer 2016, which came in at 218. We are excited to see the additional adoption of LMS usage across campus for summer quarter 2017.
