Welcome to Canvas

From Summer 2017 through Summer 2019, the University of Minnesota system will be transitioning all course sites from Moodle to our new centrally-supported Learning Management System (LMS), Canvas. Your unit has a transition plan. Find your Canvas contact to learn more.

Moodle will continue to operate as usual throughout the transition; however, following the completion of Summer Semester, there will be no active teaching in Moodle. 

If you are new to Canvas, and would like to begin using it this summer, get in touch with your unit or campus contact to understand your options, support, and timing.
