Greetings UF community!
reached the midpoint of our Spring 2018 Canvas pilot - participants
have been asked to provide feedback on their initial impressions of the
learning platform early in the semester and will have another chance to
reflect on their experience as a whole towards the end of the semester.
The majority of students and faculty in the pilot have reported having a
positive experience so far. The full survey summary and general pilot
information are available here: Canvas Pilot Summary.
members will meet in April to discuss pilot feedback and the
feasibility of switching to Canvas. The official recommendation will
then be presented to Cabinet in May. IF (and it is an if
still) we decide to switch to Canvas, we want to be proactive. Our team
is working on a migration and training plan, with work beginning as soon
as a contract is signed. We'd like to have some early adopters start
using Canvas this summer, then deliver the majority of our courses in
Canvas in Fall 2018. All remaining courses will be transitioned in
Spring 2019. Although it should go without saying, if we choose to stay
with Blackboard, nothing changes.
Call for Early Adopters - Summer 2018
out the following form if you are interested in teaching in Canvas this
summer. If you'll be migrating content from Blackboard, please have
the exact courseIDs ready (e.g., ABC123_71_SP2018).
