Canvas replaces eCollege

Instructure "Canvas", one of the newest course management systems and the system that is most prevalent among CIC schools, is available to Rutgers instructors and faculty through COHLIT for Fall 2016 courses. 

"eCollege" (or "Peason Learning Studio"), the previous system used by most online and hybride courses, has been discontinued by Pearson and must be phased out over the next few semesters. Faculty who are currently using eCollege may continue to do so for a while longer, however Canvas is a far easier and more flexible product, and there are many advantages to switching sooner rather later.

COHLIT will work with Pearson and Instructure to move courses from eCollege to Canvas. Please see the COHLIT announcement regarding Canvas for more information and updates. COHLIT has also posted Canvas training dates and materials.

Canvas is available to all faculty and instructors at Rutgers, but only replaces eCollege. Rutgers continues to support Sakai (for all campuses), Blackboard (for Newark and RBS) and Moodle (for RBHS).
