Coronavirus has not stopped Texas A&M from continuing the transition to a new learning management system.
Assistant provost Jocelyn Widmer reported during the April faculty senate meeting that the same people who moved spring semester classes online continue to work on changing the university’s learning management system.
Dr. Widmer encouraged faculty senate members to plan ahead for the switch from what they know as Blackboard to the new platform called CANVAS.
Faculty senate speaker Andrew Klein complemented Widmer and her team for taking only seven days to move 14,000 classes online, affecting A&M’s nearly 3,000 educators and 58,000 students.
The goal is to complete the move to the new learning management system platform in the summer of 2021.
