Canvas! Maybe? Looks Good!

(from the find folks at Washington’s State Board for Community and Technical Colleges)

Canvas LogoAfter a formal RFP process, the LMS RFP committee chose Instructure (Canvas) as the apparent successful vendor for the SBCTC learning management system contract.  Here is their web site:

First, I want to thank the members of the committee.  We all benefit from their expertise and attention to this project .

Second, I want to say how excited we all are with this choice.  Here are the next steps:

  • Immediately begin negotiations with Instructure for a contract that can be used by any public institution of higher education in Washington.
  • The new contract will begin on July 1, 2012.
  • Work with all partners to develop an implementation plan that will allow us to share programming, content and professional development.
  • Adjust the current cost model to reflect our new contract.
  • Colleges will be able to move to Canvas after the new system is built and we have necessary documentation and professional development.  We do not have a timeline for that since we have not yet started those conversations.
  • Plan to have all colleges off WAOL ANGEL by June 2014.

We will release all products of the RFP process , but we did want to get this announcement out as soon as possible.
