Canvas @ UNO History
UNO is currently investigating Canvas to determine its feasibility as a learning management system for the campus.
Senior Vice Chancellor, BJ Reed announced that UNO is investigating Canvas to determine its feasibility as a learning management system for the campus. Faculty and students are currently testing and providing feedback. Exploration began with a group of faculty and students working with a Canvas testing space (a “sandbox”) starting in late September / early October.
Several workshops were offered to help faculty get familiar with using Canvas.
In the spring 2017 semester, a group of faculty will teach using Canvas.
At the conclusion of this investigation, faculty and student input will be included in a recommendation that will be forwarded to the Senior Vice Chancellor, BJ Reed.
The University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) campus moved forward with pilot testing and implementation of the Canvas system for their colleges and departments last year. UNL received BOR approval for purchasing a 2-year contract with Canvas, and they will be transitioning over the next year. The other campuses in the NU system are being asked to review Canvas to get a better understanding of that system to have more informed discussions of future possibilities.
