Bye, TritonEd! Hello, Canvas!


After a thorough evaluation process, which relied heavily on feedback from our UC San Diego community, the university is transitioning to a new Learning Management System (LMS), Canvas, to better meet our community's needs. Canvas will be available to instructors starting Winter 2019.


Ready to make the switch? Great! Request a course shell to practice or build for an upcoming quarter.
