We are excited to announce that new faculty and a pilot group of existing faculty are up and running with Canvas for the Fall 2020 semester. Approximately 300 sections are being offered to test operations and to identify any additional training needs. Over 41% of our students will have at least one course in Canvas this fall as part of the pilot.
For Spring 2021 and WinterSession 2020, all sections and all faculty will be using Canvas. Moodle will not be available to students, but Moodle courses will remain accessible to faculty through the Spring 2021 and Summer 2021 semesters should they need to access any of their materials.
For faculty looking to quickly move their courses from Moodle to Canvas, the CTL has created a quick course outlining that process. Click here to access the course. Sign in using your SE Key and credentials and then click the Join Course button.
