On the Road to One LMS in Spring 2017

In autumn 2016, the Office of Distance Education and eLearning (ODEE) saw 70% of courses in Carmen using the Canvas LMS. All of the colleges at The Ohio State University are on the path to reach nearly 100% of their courses in Carmen (Canvas) for spring semester, but we’d like to give a shout out to those going above and beyond. The following departments have 70% or more of their Carmen courses already in Canvas. Kudos to the instructors in these colleges!

  • Arts and Sciences: Social and Behavioral Sciences
  • College of Medicine
  • Dentistry
  • Education and Human Ecology
  • Food, Agriculture and Environmental Science
  • Health and Rehabilitation Sciences
  • Optometry
  • Pharmacy
  • Public Health
  • Social Work
  • Veterinary Medicine

To help every department increase their adoption rates for spring, ODEE offers a wide range of resources:

  • Not sure where to start? Try a model course and build your class in Carmen (Canvas) using a template. This way, you can focus on your content without worrying about formatting.
  • See what other instructors are doing to get the most out of the features available in the Canvas LMS.
  • Attend a workshop or stop by open office hours to get hands-on assistance building Carmen (Canvas) courses.
  • You can always find the latest Carmen (Canvas) news at the Canvas Adoption site and updated how-to articles in the Canvas section of the ODEE Resource Center.
  • If you’d like to receive bi-weekly updates of the latest news and workshops, sign up for the Carmen (Canvas) newsletter and stay in-the-know.
  • Just can’t figure out how to make your course work in Canvas? Request an exception before November 18 to teach in D2L this spring. ODEE will either grant the exception or work with you to find a solution for your course.

Please note: Spring 2017 courses will become available in Carmen (Canvas) in mid-November. Instructors will NOT be able to create spring courses in D2L; ODEE staff will create these courses on behalf of faculty who will be teaching in that system.
