THE CANVAS SUCCESS MODEL
We’ve seen our customers do incredible things to plan for change and adopt Canvas. From tying Canvas to their vision for teaching and learning, to coming up with unique ways to incentivize and engage users, our customers have thought of everything. We captured all these best practices and developed the Canvas Success Model (pictured above). Our model gives school leadership a process and tools for leading the people side of your change to Canvas. If followed, this model will help you:
Increase the speed of adoption
Improve the overall student experience
THE CHECKLIST AND RESOURCES
While we encourage you to follow this model from the start, it can be used in year 2, 3, and beyond. The purpose of this document is to give you a checklist and free resources to get you started down the pathway to success. The resources linked in this checklist have been created by many talented people in our Customer Success Department at Instructure - chances are you'll recognize a few of them. Our model puts all these resources into perspective and gives you a framework for success. If you find yourself needing more help with your rollout or adoption, our Learning and Strategy Consulting Team is available to assist with Change Strategy Consulting and Adoption Consulting.
The checklist below is available via Google Docs "Make a Copy". Please select the following link for access: Canvas Success Model Checklist and Resources Copy
