Overview of Canvas

Why Now?

Los Angeles Pierce College conducted a learning management system (LMS) review to evaluate our LMS system. We had the opportunity to evaluate a new LMS that was vetted by a statewide group and that might provide costs savings to the district. The statewide Online Education Initiative (OEI) selected the LMS Canvas (by Instructure) to use as its platform for colleges.

When should I sign up to get Canvas and what's the timeline?
