Canvas LMS Update

Our learning management system (LMS) transition team has been very busy. Meeting weekly since October, the transition team has divided necessary tasks to be completed. OIT staff have been working diligently on the back side to complete the technical components of the migration including preparing the systems for the change. On the instructional side, we have been training with the new system and practicing example course design elements for future faculty training. In addition, a separate team has met to review possible course templates that ISU could implement. We are still on track for faculty training to begin occurring later this semester. A training date of Thursday, March 18 has been identified for faculty identified as early adopters. Training schedules open to all faculty will be posted shortly after. We are on track for full use of Canvas for every course in the Fall 2022 semester at Indiana State.

The LMS transition team members include Stacey Bocard (OIT); Timothy Demchak (AMR); Stephanie Alexander (ENG); Lisa Hughes (ONLINE); Kristi Lawson (ACAD AFF); Samantha Penney (ONLINE); Susan Powers (ACAD AFF); Molly Hare (FCTE); Eric Hampton (ACES); Yancy Phillips (OIT); Kevin Smith (OIT); Robert Barley (OIT); Yihua Bai (OIT); and Kerri England (INST TOOLS).
