Announcing Canvas Pilot for Fall Quarter

Header image fro announcing Canvas Pilot program

During the 2014-15 academic year, we are piloting the Canvas Learning Management System (LMS). Ten faculty are participating this fall quarter, bringing fifteen courses into Canvas.

The university currently uses Chalk (from Blackboard) as our LMS. This pilot explores using Canvas as an alternative. We want to understand if the needs of the university can be met by Canvas and also what would be involved in switching systems. We want to be sure that the process is as simple and painless as possible, and that we fully understand and are able to support the needs of faculty and students.

To learn more about the platform and our pilot program visit our Canvas pilot initiative page. Or, subscribe to our blog to keep up to date with the pilot program.

Faculty interested participating in the pilot in the winter or spring quarter, please contact Allison Kallo at akallo@uchicago.edu.
