The University Of Auckland Canvas

  • The University conducted a detailed procurement process for a new LMS.
  • The Tenders Board approved Instructure and their product Canvas in May 2015.
  • The Vice-Chancellor announced Canvas as the new LMS product for the University in June 2015.

Implementation phase:

  • The University offered orientation and discovery sessions in the third quarter of 2015.
  • The University delivered migration and training opportunities in the fourth quarter of 2015.
  • The University conducted a Summer School Pilot in the first quarter of 2016.
