Georgia Tech has adopted Canvas by Instructure as its new learning management system (lms) for both its global learners both in residence and for online courses.  They plan on rolling out a few courses this fall and then a large scale implementation in the  Spring 2018 semester.  Migration will be completed in 2019.  The decision was made after a two-year lms review by the Office of Provost and evaluation by faculty, staff, and students.
