I-Learn Canvas Update
After a thorough evaluation of the Canvas Learning Management System, we are excited to announce the decision for BYU-Idaho to use Canvas as our official LMS. This decision was made with overwhelming faculty and student support, and the transition will bring cleaner usability to both students and online instructors within I-Learn.
The process to convert courses to Canvas will begin immediately, and the first courses will be taught in Canvas beginning Fall Semester 2018. The full conversion of all BYU-Idaho courses will take several semesters and is projected to be finalized by Fall Semester 2019.
Online instructors will not be responsible for transitioning courses to the new LMS, as this work will be done by the online course designers and on-campus course leads. Training will be provided to help online instructors learn the process of working in the new Learning Management System.
Further details will come in the Online Instructor Community and through official emails from Online Learning. As new information becomes available about the Canvas transition, it will also be published atwww.byui.edu/i-learn-canvas-update. We are grateful for your support in this process and look forward to the benefits of using Canvas as our university LMS.
