Canvas pilot is underway

By Information Technology Services

The spring 2014 Canvas extended pilot is underway at K-State. Canvas is a state-of-the-art Learning Management System (LMS) that offers a variety of powerful and intuitive tools and provides an opportunity for K-State to evaluate a modern platform for interacting with students online.

A smaller pilot of Canvas was conducted during the fall 2013 semester, and it provided a lot of valuable information about how Canvas will meet K-State’s LMS needs.

The expanded spring 2014 pilot includes 50 instructors, 90 sections and more than 2,100 enrollments. The expanded pilot will give K-State the opportunity to further explore Canvas’ features, develop training and support structures, integrate K-State services, and allow more faculty and students the opportunity to use Canvas and provide their feedback.
