Migration Timeline

Implementation & Migration

Summer 2018 - Fall 2019

Canvas has been chosen as the new LMS, and migration will begin this summer. ITS, CTE, and Uf Online will be working on the migration of content and training for faculty, staff and students. At this time, the LMS Evaluation Task Force is being converted into an LMS Advisory Group for ongoing examination of our academic ecosystem.
