The Transition from Moodle to Canvas

What is the transition from Moodle to 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 (LMS).  

Why make this transition?

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.
