Mississippi State is moving to a new Learning Management System (LMS), Canvas by Instructure, to improve the teaching and learning experience for students and faculty. Along with a dashboard summarizing all relevant course events and items, Canvas features an enhanced, easy-to-manage syllabus, course calendar and course schedule that automatically updates due dates for course activities. Additionally, Canvas promotes simplified collaboration and group options for students, helps faculty improve workflow for more streamlined grading, and provides an enhanced mobile app experience. In addition to Canvas Preview Sessions on August 23 and 24, MSU’s Information Technology Services is hosting hosting hands-on Getting Started With Canvas workshops beginning September 12. Prior to participating in these sessions, faculty can become more familiar with the Canvas layout and features by accessing self-paced training courses, instructor guides and videos online at https://tinyurl.com/MSUCanvas. Students also have access to an introductory video and information guides at the aforementioned link. Registration for these events is now live at www.its.msstate.edu under the Upcoming Workshops section.
