Based on the evaluation and recommendation of the Academic Technology Advisory Council (ATAC), we have begun a pilot of the Canvas learning management system (LMS) this Spring with 21 faculty members across all four colleges teaching courses using a range of modalities (face-to-face, hybrid, and online). We will continue the pilot through Summer and Fall. Based on feedback and surveys of faculty and students using Canvas, we will present results of the pilot to a variety of faculty groups in the Fall and report back to ATAC for a decision on whether to adopt Canvas as our enterprise LMS and migrate all courses from Blackboard by the end of Spring 2014. Faculty interested in testing and/or piloting courses in Canvas can request access by filling out the online form:
Live training webinars offered online with Blackboard Collaborate are now scheduled in addition to the usual face-to-face sessions in Barge Hall 201.

For more information on these sessions please call 509-963-1224.
