eLPS Leads Canvas Rollout in 2014The Division of eLearning and Professional Studies (eLPS) will lead the rollout and administration of the university’s new learning management system, Canvas by Instructure. According to Provost Lucas, “Blackboard will continue to be supported by the team led by David Yother and Ronan O’Beirne. All aspects of Canvas conversion and future administration will be supported by Dr. Elizabeth Fisher and her team in the Division of eLPS. This way, the faculty have a clear path for assistance and future success with this exciting new LMS.”
The existing Blackboard team will continue to support users of any third-party tools associated with Bb use (e.g. Respondus, Collaborate, Turn-it-in, etc.). As faculty begin teaching courses in Canvas, Dr. Fisher’s team will provide all technical support for Canvas users, including all third-party tools needed for faculty and student success.
