As announced in Fall 2018, Canvas will replace TritonEd as the new campus Learning Management System (LMS). The decision to migrate came after a 2017 campuswide evaluation involving faculty, teaching assistants and the entire undergraduate and graduate student body. Canvas is currently available for instruction, and will fully replace TritonEd by June 2020.
Canvas addresses many of the University's requirements, such as intuitive interface, accessibility, third-party application integration and a mobile-friendly design. Instructors will benefit from a simplified gradebook, effective feedback tools and insightful learning analytics.
Instructors can familiarize themselves with Canvas by accessing their practice course at https://coursefinder.ucsd.edu. The IT Services EdTech Support team will fully support instructors via workshops and individual consultation. In tandem, The Teaching + Learning Commons staff provides expert guidance on course design and evidence-based teaching practices.
Faculty, staff and students can find more information about this transition by visiting https://edtech.ucsd.edu. If you are ready to build a course in Canvas, please email email@example.com. IT Services looks forward to supporting you in making the transition.
