LMS Transition

Transitioning to Canvas

Meeting high customer demand and anticipation, Canvas is the perfect answer to many of the concerns expressed by faculty and students alike in regard to WSU’s current Learning Management Software (LMS), Blackboard.

In 2018, ITS, AOI, and the Faculty Senate began investigating alternatives, ultimately arriving at Canvas as the most dependable solution for its ease of use, seamless integration with WSU’s existing academic architecture, and more modern interface.

ITS and AOI are here to help WSU academics begin this new and exciting chapter and offers the following resources to help encourage early adoption of Canvas and to ensure WSU’s transition to the new Learning Management Software (LMS) is as smooth as possible.
