The Office of Innovation and Information Technology (OIIT) recognizes that providing a high quality Learning Management System (LMS) is critical to student success as well as keeping NSU on the cutting-edge of instructional technology. To that end, OIIT is pleased to introduce Phase 2 of a pilot using Canvas by Instructure.
What is Canvas?
Canvas is a cloud-based LMS that simplifies the online teaching and learning process while allowing for active learning solutions at every level. Canvas is known for its user-friendly online environment and ability to easily connect instructors and students both in and out of the classroom. Canvas includes basic LMS functionality for sharing documents, submitting assignments, and assigning grades, as well as personalized features for individual students.
Canvas Pilot Phase 2
A small group of faculty has had the opportunity to participate in the original pilot with positive results. Phase 2 of the pilot program with Canvas will widen the opportunity for participation and hands-on training for faculty members. Phase 2 will begin with the Winter 1 semester.
