Session Description

As part of the University of Minnesota’s ongoing mission to review and evaluate emerging instructional technology, several educators were selected across the University of Minnesota to participate in a pilot program to assess Canvas as a learning management system (instead of Moodle, which is the current LMS used on UM campuses). Over the past several months pilot participants have been using Canvas to connect and share strategies on how to best use this powerful tool. Presenters will compare and contrast the two learning management systems (Moodle and Canvas) as it relates to teaching online, hybrid, and flipped learning class sessions. Presentation will allow time for discussion.
