Transitioning from one learning management system to another is a considerable task, one that will have a huge significance for our student and staff experience. We’re using the shift from BlackBoard to Canvas to spark a transformation (LX Transformation) in our approach to whole of course design across the university.

Extending the possibilities of our new learning management system

LX Transformation is an opportunity to rethink, refresh and transform how we approach whole of course design to enhance the student learning experience in a contemporary digital environment. Over the next few weeks, LXT is partnering with course teams to ready them for course led transition to Canvas for Postgraduate courses being taught in Autumn 2020. There is a detailed plan for the transition and extensive support that will be available to make sure the move is both smooth and successful.

To find out more about LX Transformation and why everyone’s talking about it join us at an upcoming information session in the LX.lab.
