Canvas Adoption

LMS Usage: Canvas Courses vs. Chalk Courses over the last 4 quarters, Autumn 2016 through Summer 2017

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.
