Canvas Transition

Canvas is here - join us!

Canvas Adoption

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 created in Canvas exceeded the number of courses in Chalk for summer 2016.

For more information about how we chose Canvas as our next learning management system, you can read about it on the project background page.
