Canvas Transition Information
We are pleased to introduce the Maryville community to our new Learning Management System, Canvas from the company Instructure. Several courses will be piloting the platform in the spring of 2014, with a full implementation for all courses in the summer 2014 semester.
As we prepare for the transition, training, migration and other information will be shared on this site, through the links below, email, and various other online and in-person events. Our goal is for the transition to be as seamless as possible and to ensure all users are comfortable with Canvas well before the summer 2014.
Please don’t hesitate to let us know when you have questions: firstname.lastname@example.org.
