THE UK'S FIRST CANVAS USERS
Since switching to Canvas, the University of Birmingham has seen adoption rates soar, with 4,600 courses uploaded to Canvas in the first three months, more than had been available in previous years on the legacy platform.

The UK’s First Canvas Users

Using the VLE to enhance the student experience is now an integral part of the digital transformation taking place at the University of Birmingham. The Birmingham Digital Education team works alongside the Teaching and Learning Development team within the Higher Education Futures institute (HEFi) led by the PVC for Education, Kathy Armour. Take a closer look at the work of the institute here.

WHAT PEOPLE HAVE SAID ABOUT CANVAS

   

“I was really impressed with the initial view of it.”

“When I first started using Canvas … what I really liked was that all the modules I was involved in, both as a student and a teacher, were in one place.”

Laura Healy
Doctoral Researcher, Sport, Exercise & Rehabilitation Sciences,
University of Birmingham

“The reception of Canvas has been very, very positive.”

“People who wouldn’t use the old system are using Canvas. In a very short period of time we’re seeing greater uptake and we’re seeing greater engagement from the student side of things as well.”

Joe Berry
Birmingham Digital Education, Partnership and Development Manager for the College of Life and Environmental Sciences

“Students that I work with loved Canvas."

“Students love the way that they can get messages on their phones. They don’t have to be sitting in front of their computer. You can be in Canvas but not be in Canvas; it can come to you.”

Matt Bridge
Senior Lecturer in Coaching & Sports Science, University of Birmingham

“I’m on it all the
time really.”

“I’m on Canvas quite a lot of the time because our lecturers are really good at constantly updating things. It’s got all the timetables on it and also with announcements it’s a great reference point.”

Third-year Law student,
