New Canvas Interface for Summer 2016

COLLEGE PARK, MD (May, 2016) – The Division of Information Technology will deploy the New Canvas Interface throughout campus on Monday, May 23, 2016. This will affect all faculty and students. The modernized interface will allow you to view your courses as large visual tiles.


The navigation menu that is currently on the top will now appear on the left vertical menu.

The new interface has large visual icons called cards. This will allow the user to view courses with ease.  In addition, the large colorful squares provide the user with shortcuts to announcements, discussions, and assignments. The course menu will remain on the left hand of the screen.

ETS will offer a brownbag on June 15 at 12:00PM in Conference Room 0306 Benjamin. Please RSVP at the following link:
