Project Evolve update: January 2020

Image with words Canvas is here

In Semester 1, 2020 all subjects throughout the University will be using our new Learning Management System (LMS); Canvas. Much preparation has gone into this full launch, with a pilot taking place in 2019. Professional development, migration consultations, online self-paced learning, support consultations, drop-in sessions and regular roadshow events have all ensured that we are well prepared to make a successful move to Canvas in 2020.

First Evolve Roadshow for 2020: Thursday 20 February

The first Project Evolve Roadshow of 2020 will take place on Thursday 20 February, 10.00am-12.00pm. Commencing with a brief plenary session, attendees will then have the opportunity to drop-in to speak with the migration team, have questions answered at the support bar, learn more about best-practice learning design in Canvas, and attend a pre-registered express workshop. An invite with more details will be available in early February.

Drop-in support sessions - February and March

Project Evolve is facilitating a series of 'drop-in' sessions in February and March 2020 to further support core staff who are teaching subjects in Canvas in 2020.  These drop-in sessions will allow staff who have attended Canvas professional development and migration consultations to seek further assistance with general organisation and presentation of subjects, including assessments.

The session will be held in G16, Elisabeth Murdoch Building Parkville on the following dates:

Monday 3 February, 9:30am-12.30pm

Monday 10 February, 9:30am-12.30pm

Monday 17 February, 9:30am-12.30pm

Monday 24 February, 9:30am-12.30pm

Tuesday 3 March, 9:30am-12.30pm

Tuesday 10 March, 9:30am-12.30pm

Migration consultations

Opportunities still available to book for a migration consultation. For those teaching a subject that falls in Transition Window 3 (teaching in the second half of the year), information is available on the Project Evolve website, and further subject migration details will be provided from February.

For additional support with your Canvas subject, please see the LMS homepage with details of 24/7 phone support, online chat, and Learning Environments' support.
