The project team have been busy over the last couple of weeks and early adopters of Canvas have now been confirmed. The team have started delivering training to make sure that early adopters get the most out of this new University Virtual Learning Environment which will launch across the whole University for the 2020/21 academic year.
We are also pleased to announce that the Canvas team will be here on the 20-22 January delivering a number of roadshows giving you the chance to see the new opportunities that Canvas brings and ask any questions that you might have. We are looking forward to sharing more details about this in the next couple of weeks.
To find out more about the transition to Canvas please visit the Canvas project site. If you have any questions or would like to invite the project team to speak to colleagues in your school/service, please email firstname.lastname@example.org

Since we announced that Canvas will be replacing Blackboard as the University’s Virtual Learning Environment from the 2020-21 academic year, the project team have been busy attending a range of Faculty and School meetings to update colleagues on the plan for the coming months. These will continue throughout November and December to ensure we communicate with as many people as possible.
This week, the Canvas team will be on site to finalise the project plan and start work on the implementation of the system and data migration. This will be followed up next week with another onsite visit during which colleagues in LTDS, NUIT and the FMS TEL team who will be designing and delivering the training for staff and students will receive three days of intensive training from the Canvas training team.
