Fall semester is close to wrapping up, and faculty may be looking beyond finals to plan their jump from ANGEL to Canvas. It’s a perfect time, thanks to all the resources available between now and January 9, the start of spring semester.
Faculty can continue to teach in ANGEL through summer II session in 2017. But why delay the move to the new Learning Management System? With the help of the Canvas Learning Path, TLT Instructional Support Team, IT Training Services, Canvas Liaisons at each college and campus, and Instructure (the company that created Canvas), there are many avenues to assist with questions you may encounter in your transition.
