We had a busy summer here at Mesa Community College, changing both our Learning Management and Email systems! Managing two large migrations was hard, but we are already seeing the ways that these changes are enhancing teaching and learning.
Canvas – Our Learning Management System
MCC is now using the Canvas Learning Management System. Canvas replaced the WebCT system. WebCT is no longer available for the purpose of teaching classes or grading in Fall 2012. After December 2012 WebCT will no longer be available for course migrations.

Whether you teach a face-to-face, online or hybrid, Canvas can help you improve student learning and communication with your classes! Get started with Canvas in our online self-paced course. Self register at http://tinyurl.com/canvasgettingstarted. Learn how to migrate your course from WebCT, navigate the interface, set-up your course, find helpful guides and more.
Check our calendar for upcoming training to be announced soon. There will be a Canvas series of workshops throughout the Fall semester. Topics will include: Getting Started, Grading, Communicating Effectively, Media Options and more!
