Provost Announces Adoption of Canvas to Replace Blackboard

Temple recently completed a university-wide Learning Management System (LMS) evaluation of Canvas, an industry-leading application. This review has been informed by focus groups, surveys, town hall meetings, faculty and student pilot programs and experimentation with Canvas through a sandbox course. The LMS Selection Committee advised that we move from Blackboard Learn (the current LMS) to Canvas. In consultation with Cindy Leavitt, vice president for computer services and chief information officer, I am pleased to share that we endorse the committee's recommendation. Canvas will be able to adapt to the university's changing needs and will further position Temple as a leader in education.
