Canvas is here!

WFU will be transitioning from Sakai to Canvas as our Learning Management System (LMS). The Instructional Technology Group has been working diligently to learn Canvas so we can assist faculty with the transition. This page will serve as a landing page for the information we post on Canvas. Bookmark it and check back with us over the next few semesters.

Pilot users are teaching in Canvas now. Early adopters will begin teaching with Canvas in the Spring of 2020. All WFU faculty who teach with the LMS will begin using Canvas in Fall 2020.

See canvas.wfu.edu for more information and to log into your Canvas Dashboard.

Want to be an early adopter? You have until Oct 31 to sign up by completing this form.
