ECU Next > Canvas

In 2022 Canvas will replace Blackboard as ECU’s Learning Management System (LMS). It will form a central part of ECU’s next-generation digital learning environment, alongside familiar tools like Panopto, Turnitin and Microsoft Teams.

Students who tested Canvas as part of our LMS review were most excited about the following features:

  • Unified Calendar – the ability to see assignments and events for all units in one place
  • To do list – a tool to stay on track with upcoming due dates and tasks
  • Notifications – customisations for how to receive information (e.g. email, text or calendar)
  • Canvas App – access to course materials, messaging, assignment submission and more from a mobile device (Android and iOS)

To learn more about Canvas you can explore their website.

What does it mean for me?

Transitioning this platform will take some time, so students won’t see much change in 2021. However, we will be seeking student input to make sure the transition to Canvas is a smooth one. For students who are studying with us into 2022 watch out for updates. Watch out too for paid opportunities to join our project team. We’ll be looking for students from across ECU!
