After a thorough evaluation of the Canvas Learning Management System, we are excited to announce BYU-Idaho’s decision to use Canvas as our official LMS. The process to convert courses to Canvas will begin immediately, and courses will be taught in Canvas beginning Fall Semester 2018. The full conversion of all BYU-Idaho courses will take several semesters and is projected to be finalized by Fall Semester 2019.
All on-campus faculty who are interested in converting their courses for this fall will be given the opportunity to sign up for a sit-down consultation with a curriculum designer and a Faculty Technology Center assistant to discuss their courses and the overall conversion process. Faculty will be contacted in a separate email from the FTC with instructions explaining when and where to sign up to start the conversion process.
This decision was made with overwhelming faculty and student support, and the transition will bring cleaner usability to both students and faculty within I-Learn. We are grateful for your support in this process as we work together toward a unified Learning Management System.
