The University of Texas at Tyler is transitioning to Instructure Canvas. The decision was made after a yearlong exploration of three different learning management systems. The input and experience from faculty, staff and students revealed an excitement to transition from Blackboard Learn to Instructure Canvas.

Teaching and learning opportunities are changing with the new learning environment. With a focus on ease of use, faculty have the opportunity to evaluate their online content delivery. Navigation and content creation pilots have revealed a simple and clear process for faculty to utilize. Furthermore, features like drag-and-drop and the SpeedGrader enable faculty to enhance their teaching by reducing the emphasis on learning how to navigate the teaching environment. 

Students are in for new opportunities also! The mobile app increases connectivity with the learning environment enabling students to stay engaged with their learning communities. Students continue to have access to tools like the calendar, but will now have ePortfolios, Resource Commons and enhanced communication abilities.
