Rolling out Canvas across Oxford

Since going live in June 2018, our early adopters have been using Canvas in interesting, innovative ways to enhance teaching and learning at Oxford.

From creating visual, engaging dashboards for their students, to using templates to deliver consistent experiences across courses, to embedding videos, using the new Oxford Reading Lists Online (ORLO) tool in Canvas, and more.

Students have also been using the Canvas app on their mobile devices to access their courses and groups. The app can be used to submit work, participate in discussions, and view feedback and course materials. 

Canvas for your department or faculty

We are now looking to engage with departments and faculties to discuss moving to Canvas in readiness for Michaelmas term 2019. We will be focusing on moving award-bearing Year One Undergraduate and Postgraduate programmes of study to Canvas in the next academic year (2019). If you are interested in exploring Canvas and how it can help deliver your teaching and learning objectives within your department, please get in touch by email at for an initial meeting. We will provide you with an overview of the platform, as well as discuss your readiness and requirements.
