Instructure Canvas is the primary learning management system (LMS) for academic and other courses used by 10 university divisions. (As a note, the School of Public Health’s CoursePlus and Center for Talented Youth’s Moodle will continue to be used by those divisions.)
The University selected Instructure Canvas as a replacement of our previous system after a comprehensive evaluation process. Thousands of faculty, staff, and students shared their feedback along with an in-depth review by IT@JH, Student Disabilities Services (SDS), and the divisions’ teaching and learning centers.
