Why Canvas?

In Spring 2016, three LMSs were evaluated as part of a CSU system-wide evaluation. Canvas outperformed the other two systems. Members of the T&LI team at CI were part of the evaluation team and believe that Canvas will be a good fit for CI. For students, Canvas offers an enhanced, contemporary learning experience. For faculty, Canvas offers superior performance in terms of ease-of-use, analytics, grading, course migrations and openness. During the Spring 2017 semester, CI conducted a Canvas pilot.
