Canvas Transition

‌The University of West Florida is transitioning to Canvas as our new learning management system (LMS), and it will replace Desire2Learn (D2L) between Summer semester and Fall 2018.

Fall 2018

All UWF Courses in Canvas

Upgrading to Canvas is the next step in our ongoing process to ensure quality in online education. From the Faculty perspective, we are very excited about Canvas' clean interface, easier building experience and SpeedGrader. Best of all, students love it! Students report increased satisfaction due to hypothetical grades, a superior mobile app and simplified group work. 

New information will be added to this website as it becomes available.
