Updates on Canvas, UW’s new learning management system

Many departments took advantage of the targeted Canvas training support from DoIT this semester. Fifteen group Canvas trainings were conducted this semester in CALS departments along with 6 individual trainings. Approximately 80 instructors were trained.

All 2016 timetable courses have been migrated, and Spring 2017 courses will also be migrated over the next few weeks. UW still plans to drop Desire2Learn and Moodle during the summer of 2018.

Targeted support for CALS Canvas trainings ending this summer and only limited support from DoIt will be available after that. Please contact Tom Tabone ( if you like to schedule any assistance. Open Canvas training events on campus can also be found at
