Canvas update

Over the next two years, Canvas will replace Moodle as the University's centrally-supported Learning Management System. About 5% of instructors will be using Canvas this fall. More are expected to use it in spring 2018. See the Canvas Transition website for more information and a timeline.

With the new Canvas process, all classes that are setup in PeopleSoft will have an unpublished class site automatically generated before the start of each semester. The unpublished Canvas courses will be displayed to instructors if they are assigned as a primary instructor in PeopleSoft.

Currently, many courses in PeopleSoft do not have a primary instructor assigned. Schedulers should assign primary instructors, teaching assistants, and other instructor roles to support this process as well as for class rosters and grade entry.
