Hello Canvas

Hello Canvas Logo



After 9 years of using Sakai, South Alabama is changing its learning management system (LMS). It’s “Bye Bye Sakai” and “Hello Canvas”. The Innovation in Learning Center within the Office of Academic Affairs has recommended Canvas after an 8-month review process that included vendor demonstrations, hands-on testing by a campus task force of faculty, staff and students and conversations with other institutions who have made the transition from Sakai. By moving to Canvas, the university community will be able to access a modern LMS with intuitive tools for building courses and learning with them, mobile apps for faculty and students, easier collaboration and feedback using multimedia tools and enhanced grading capabilities.
