Evaluating our Learning Management System: Canvas Pilot-Teaching Excellence & Educational Innovation - Carnegie Mellon University

Evaluating our Learning Management System: Canvas Pilot

In Spring 2016, the Eberly Center launched an initiative to evaluate CMU's centrally-supported learning management system (LMS) with respect to evolving needs and new tools. As part of this process, we will be piloting Canvas and comparing it to our current Blackboard LMS. We also anticipate evaluating a projected release of a new version of Blackboard, Blackboard Ultra, in Fall 2016. Members of our teaching and learning community (students, faculty, and staff) will comprise an Advisory Group to help inform this effort.

Below you will find more details about the various phases and efforts associated with this project, and we will continue to update this site as the project progresses.
