Countdown to Canvas approaching fast

There are less than three months left to get your courses moved from D2L to Canvas, the new learning management system behind Carmen. EHE's Educational Technology (Ed Tech) team has helped faculty and staff move their courses to the new Canvas system since the beginning of August.

The team is offering additional opportunities for you to get a handle on the Canvas platform and prepare for the full Canvas integration during spring semester.

Attend a hands-on session where the EHE Ed Tech team will walk you through the initial stages of building your course in Carmen (Canvas).
