Our school soon will begin the process of moving from Blackboard to Canvas, and I will be working with the faculty to get them started and on board with Canvas. As we get started, my question is how have others explained to the faculty the difference in philosophy between how Canvas is set up in comparison to Blackboard. They are used to setting up their own course menu, choosing their own color scheme (I hate the lime green and hot pink choices that one professor always makes), and other things they won't be able to do in Canvas. I have no doubt that our faculty will like using Canvas, but I want to get them started out right.
