Instructure/Canvas

Instructure Canvas, a learning management system that enables faculty to manage and deliver online courses to students, is now available for use.  On January 1, 2013, Blackboard Vista will no longer be functioning, so Canvas will completely replace Blackboard Vista as Alamo Colleges District learning management system.

Canvas was chosen for the following reasons: 

  
    -Ease of use.

    -Multimedia integration and delivery.

    -Compliance with accessibility standards.

    -Mobile friendliness.

    -Social media integration and personalized notifications.


Canvas Training is now available at San Antonio College.  Our College Instructional Innovation Center (IIC), located at MLC 712, offers both face to face workshops for faculty and students and Online training.  Faculty can sign up for Canvas Online Training by accessing ALAMOLEARN via ACES, EMPLOYEE TAB.  Student workshops are also available at the Student Mega Lab.  Students can register for the Canvas Essentials workshops by accessing the  Training Calendar.  The Instructional Innovation Center is dedicated to supporting Faculty and Staff by offering a wide range of Instructional Technology services.
