After a 20 month process that included pilot courses in multiple LMS environments, conversations with peer institutions, vendor presentations, and public Q&A sessions with vendors, ASU has selected Canvas by Instructure as the campuswide Learning Management System (LMS).
Developed by Instructure, Inc., the Canvas learning management system (LMS) includes most of the standard tools found in open source and commercial management systems (assignments, discussions, announcements, quizzes, syllabus, etc.) as well as enhanced tools and features for communication, collaboration, and assessment, including real-time web conferencing, a multimedia recorder, a Google Docs integration, outcomes and rubrics, and course analytics.
ASU's current Blackboard LMS will run in parallel to Canvas and may be used for courses until the end of the 2019 Spring semester. Blackboard will be unavailable to users after June 30, 2019.
ASU’s transition to the cloud-hosted Canvas solution will offer faculty significant opportunities to reimagine their courses and leverage a range of new teaching and learning services for their students.
We will be offering robust training and support during the 18 month transition period to Canvas, and will allocate additional instructional design resources to work with the Colleges in migrating the course offerings.
