Why Canvas?

In a lengthy evaluation process by the LMS Selection Committee, Canvas received the highest evaluation marks from faculty and students and met the college’s evaluation criteria better than any of the other available options.

As we move closer to the launch date of Canvas, we will release the Canvas Student Orientation.  Information will be posted here and around campus to help keep you informed.  Until then, watch the video below to learn more about Canvas.

Google: Drive (cloud storage and productivity suite)

Google Docs is becoming Google Drive on regular Gmail accounts.  Our Skipjack mail is a Gmail product via Google Apps for Education.  Our students, faculty, and staff can login to their Skipjack accounts and access these features.  Google Drive will be released for Education apps soon, but a date has not been provided.  When you login to your Skipjack account  you will see a notice that it will be upgrading to Google Drive.

Here is a helpful review of the new Google Drive.
