[Chancellor’s Statewide Syllabus with logo]

Tuesday, September 4, 2018

John Tyler Community College is one of seven colleges in the VCCS system that will participate in the early rollout of the Canvas Learning Management System

LMS transition to Canvas offers VCCS faculty members the chance to paint a more vivid learning experience for students

DATA POINTS

The VCCS transition from Blackboard to Canvas learning management system (LMS) will be a major project:
• Approximately 33,000 course sections are taught at Virginia’s Community Colleges each semester.
• Approximately 25,000 courses were taught during the spring 2018 semester using the Blackboard LMS.
• As of May 2019, ALL VCCS courses currently on Blackboard will transition to Canvas LMS.

Four out of five Virginians say community college is “worth the cost” according to recent statewide survey.
