The Conversation about Canvas
On July 18, 2016, the Peralta Distance Education Committee recommended that we begin a transition from Moodle to Canvas as Peralta’s Learning Management System.
This recommendation was based on the committee’s belief that switching to Canvas would:
- Allow Peralta to take advantage of valuable resources provided by the California Community College State Chancellor’s Office
- Foster an environment of increased innovation and accountability in Peralta’s online and hybrid classes, and provide cutting edge online technology for our students
- Provide a more user friendly LMS, with improved options for student support resources
- Be part of the statewide OEI (Online Education Initiative) that will soon provide a common online learning platform for all California Community College students
The efforts to implement Canvas statewide are overseen by the Online Education Initiative and supported by generous state funding.
