SVM is Moving to Canvas - Fall 2017
On June 28th, the Executive Committee followed the recommendation of the School IT Governance Committee and the School Learning Management System (LMS) Task Force to adopt CANVAS as the LMS for the School of Veterinary Medicine starting Fall Semester 2017. This decision follows 3 successful pilots in VET 405, 406, and 415. Canvas will replace CERE, which has been our LMS since 2005. In recent years, the development of this application has stalled and the tools offered have not kept pace with other commercially available LMS.
SVM-IT and the Curriculum Support Team will be working for the remainder of the summer to get Fall courses ready and finalize our customizations and automation. Training on the new system will be scheduled starting the week of 7/17. Our focus for Fall Semester is on the curriculum including the Senior Clinic courses. Starting in Spring Semester, we will address the 300+ project sites currently served by CERE.
