For the past 10+ years, OwlSpace, powered by Sakai, has been Rice University’s learning management system. After a 3 semester pilot, the ITC Academic Technologies subcommittee voted unanimously for Canvas to be Rice’s new LMS. Beginning in Fall 2016, faculty will be able to use Canvas. For information on Canvas, visit http://edtech.rice.edu/canvas/
In Fall 2016, courses and rosters will automatically be provisioned from information provided by the Office of the Registrar, and they are updated twice a day. Collaboration and project sites are created upon request.
