Reason for Change

The version of Blackboard that WNMU was using had reached its end of life so we had to change our LMS. After researching the choices and seeking input from students, faculty and staff we chose to adopt Canvas by Instructure for our LMS services.
 

Why Canvas?

In a lengthy evaluation process at WNMU, Canvas received the highest evaluation marks from faculty and students and met the University’s evaluation criteria better than any of the other available options.
