The transition to Canvas as the centrally-supported course management system (CMS) is underway. UFIT has training workshops, online resources, and course migration services available to assist with the transition. Available services are listed in the Transitioning to Canvas Brochure.
Two workshops–Canvas Boot Camp and Canvas Transition–are scheduled at the Health Science Center Communicore Building and in the HUB. Register for workshops at either location via the UFIT Training website. On-site Canvas training is also available by request for units with five or more people interested in enrolling. (Note: On-site scheduling requires that the interested unit have access to a computer lab.)
