Canvas

Canvas is Molloy's new comprehensive learning platform designed to support fully online or blended learning with features that enhance student learning and collaboration. The Canvas online modules contain links to readings and videos that you may explore on your own or in collaboration with others. The discussion boards allow you to respond to required and self-selected readings and then engage in a dialogue about the readings with each other. Canvas lends itself to setting up various group activities, connects easily to library resources and also leverages various external tools such as Google docs. And, Canvas support is available 24 hours a day - seven days a week!

After a successful pilot of Canvas in the Summer of 2015, Molloy College is following many of our peers in switching to Canvas as our Learning Management System (LMS). We are approaching this change in systems (from Jenzabar eLearning to Canvas) with a targeted rollout. The current timeline is as follows:

Summer 2015: All Hybrid/Online courses being offered will use Canvas. Other courses will continue using Lion's Den. 
Fall 2015: All Hybrid/Online courses being offered will use Canvas. Any faculty member who wishes to use Canvas has the option to. Faculty who want to continue using Lion's Den can.
Spring 2016: All Hybrid/Online courses being offered will use Canvas. Any faculty member who wishes to use Canvas has the option to. Faculty who want to continue using Lion's Den can.
Summer 2016 and beyond: Molloy will use Canvas as its LMS for all courses. Lion's Den LMS will no longer be available. 

Technology Learning Services is working on the creation of materials for Students and Faculty. Many of these materials will be located within Canvas via special orientation and training courses.
