Canvas LMS

March 26, 2013

Canvas is the new Learning Management system introduced at Penn. We will be offering Canvas as an alternative to the Course Portal in the fall 2013 term. ITS is working on many fronts to make this happen. We are gearing up to provide support to the various groups that will be using the system. Training will be offered in small groups as well as on an individual basis. We will also be providing online help docs and videos. On the programming side, we are setting up synchronization scripts between Canvas and SRS so that course enrollment is automated. We are also working to integrate some of your favorite Course Portal features into Canvas. This includes Seating Charts, Media Requests, Drop/Add Lists and Classroom Recordings.
