Canvas LMS is ready for instructor preview

August 3, 2017

Implementation of Iowa State's new learning management system (LMS) is underway, with instructor access now available. In June, Canvas was chosen to replace the current Blackboard LMS. Blackboard still is available for use during the fall semester; Canvas will be fully implemented for spring courses.

All instructors are encouraged to log in to the introductory version of the Canvas LMS and access their migrated Blackboard materials. The full-featured version of Canvas will be available by mid-semester, allowing instructors to build their courses prior to the 2018 spring semester.

A host of resources -- including Canvas-led webinars, one-on-one support and 24/7 assistance -- are available on the ISU Canvas website, "MyCanvas: Teacher at ISU." CELT staff are planning additional online faculty development opportunities.
