Welcome to Canvas

Over the next two years the University of Minnesota system will be transitioning all course sites from Moodle to our new centrally supported Learning Management System (LMS), Canvas. Development of transition plans with individual units and campuses are ongoing. Refer back to this site for regular updates and the latest transition information.

Moodle will continue to operate as usual for the next 2 years; however, all course sites starting in fall of 2019 will be required to use Canvas. 

A small number of instructors have made the transition from Moodle to Canvas for Fall 2017. If you are considering using Canvas for Spring 2018 get in touch with your unit or campus contact to understand your options, support, and timing.
