UPDATE (June 17, 2022)

After successful pilots during the Fall 2021 and Spring 2022 semesters, we will continue with the Canvas rollout. In Fall 2022, all UNC-Chapel Hill faculty, students and staff will be able to access Canvas. Access may be granted to non-affiliated guests per special request. All official Registrar courses and rosters will be available in Canvas automatically. Instructors may opt to build out their sites and teach in Canvas instead of Sakai. Facilitators of non-credit training and instructional sites may request to build sites in Canvas as well. Full Sakai access remains available for all users and use cases.

Spring 2022 Canvas Pilot Implementation

During the Fall 2021 semester, ITS Educational Technologies and Digital and Lifelong Learning conducted a small pilot of the Canvas learning management system. In Spring 2022, this project will expand the pilot to include more courses and users. ITS EdTech will continue to evaluate the Canvas learning management system as a possible replacement for Sakai, and will collaborate with Instructure (developers of Canvas) and its course migration partner K16 on the implementation of the pilot. The project will measure success using end-of-semester surveys and focus groups with faculty and students.
