At the October 20th iTi Conference, Canvas, Schoology, and Blackboard shared their products with those in attendance. After reviewing the products and their potential to enhance teaching, learning and school use of data, ESU 9 has selected Canvas as our preferred learning management system. We have already begun working to convert existing Moodle users to the new system, and hope to have that completed before December. Any online professional development courses will also be developed in this system.

Teachers who wish to begin using Canvas can contact Gary or Lois at ESU 9 for information on setting up an account.

If your school has selected Schoology or another LMS, rest assured in the decision. These newer systems are designed to interoperate with each other, and some features make one product a better fit for your district over another.
