Moving to Canvas

By: Lyn Collie

Canvas is rolling out across the University by Semester 1 of 2016, which means we need to get a wriggle on!

There is pleasure and fear associated with a blank canvas. We’re free to do what we want, to start afresh and (one hopes) create a thing of beauty. Alternatively, we fear a blank canvas – what if our efforts fail and we just end up with a big mess and a lot of wasted paint and effort? The fear and pleasure associated with newness is no doubt what many of us will experience in the coming months as we move over to Canvas, the new Learning Management System (LMS) which the University of Auckland has adopted.
