UW-Madison Transitioning to Canvas

Based on positive results from pilot studies and campus feedback, UW-Madison is transitioning to the Canvas learning management system (LMS) over the next two years. The plan is to adopt Canvas as the single, centrally supported LMS, and to discontinue campus support for D2L and Moodle by 2018.

All credit-based courses can now transition to Canvas. Faculty and instructional staff should contact the designated instructional technologist for their school or college to help plan for their transition and review the current transition schedule to learn when their unit plans to move its courses. Those with a Canvas course can log in through Learn@UW.

To receive regular updates about the transition and available resources, send an email to join-canvasinfo@lists.wisc.edu.
