I am on week 2 of a new job where I am tasked with running the pilot program for Canvas. I have used Canvas at a previous institution for a number of years and am fairly comfortable with the benefits. I have not used Blackboard, however, as my previous migration experience was from an internally developed LMS to Canvas. What I basically wanted to know is if anyone has a one-pager or any type of document that outlines the benefits of Canvas over Blackboard. If I can go into my strategy meetings with this type of document or knowlege I think it would make adoption easier. I can work on creating it but just thought I would throw it out to this group in case someone has already developed something similar that they would be able to share. I have a tool comparison document, but basically am looking for more of a "sales pitch" document to persuade people to join the pilot.
I am an experienced instructional designer and technologist with a passion for creating courses and training. I enjoy developing online learning courses and training, creating educational strategies, implementing course sites and educational multimedia, and learning about educational theories. I am currently working at Northeastern University to help to bring the University over from Blackboard to Canvas but I have been working with Canvas since 2014 (previously at Harvard University) so this is my second migration experience but my first at this large of a scale. I am am excited to bring Canvas to Northeastern and to share the excitement I have around Canvas with everyone here! (I love Canvas so much I even made it my capstone project in my master's degree!)
