Faculty Senate Canvas Pilot Test Sign-up

Canvas Pilot Test Sign Up Form

During summer 2019, WSU successfully piloted a 400 seat test of the Canvas Learning Management System. ITS has tested Canvas back-end integration with MyWSU and is assured these systems are compatible. For example, with Canvas, grades can be pushed directly to MyWSU, something not possible in Blackboard. A continuing pilot test plan was approved very late in summer that provided 1,000 student seats.  We are requesting applications for spring 2020, where we will have 2,000 seats.  If all continues to go well, Canvas will follow a staged adoption approach and replace Blackboard by fall 2021.

Courses for the pilot tests will be selected based on our ability to fully support students, faculty, and staff.  If you are interested in participating, please fill out the form below no later than November 4, 2019.  You will be contacted shortly thereafter.  If selected, instructional designers will assist in converting existing Blackboard classes to Canvas.

Please note that we will only be able to support a limited number of Canvas integrations so course selections will be based on this as well as system-wide representation
