Eastern's Learning Management System
EWU is well into a transition from Blackboard (our current Learning Management System) to Canvas. Canvas brings many exciting new features and capabilities to EWU with the goal of enhancing the user experience while mitigating frustration. We are moving through our pilot phase, which began last Summer and has continued through this Fall with more than 150 courses and 2000 students, and are ready for the rest of the EWU community to get involved.
Status and Update
While Blackboard will continue to be available through Spring Quarter, 2013, Canvas is effectively already available to everyone at EWU without need to request or create an account.

"It's a lot easier to use and I like all the features like the calender with the due dates." - Maresa
"For me at least, it is more user friendly, and I like how when you log on and go to one of your courses, it will tell you if you have new grades that were posted or any new messages. " - Jennifer
