City College is proud to announce the transition to a new learning management system (LMS), Canvas. Canvas has a mobile app and is easy-to-use. Starting in the Fall 2021 term, Canvas will replace MyCity Online. Canvas will be used within both online and on campus courses. Throughout the next few days and throughout the remainder of term, you will be receiving emails and communications preparing you for this exciting transition.
Canvas allows every student to interact during classes, actively engage in assignments, take quizzes, collaborate with peers, communicate with teachers, and there is an app for your classes.
Additionally, we are happy to announce that all courses are to be housed in Canvas. This includes core content, as well as electives and specialized courses. This will enable us to shift to fully virtual instruction if additional school closures are required. Canvas will be for every student, every day regardless of their selected mode of instruction. Face-to-face students will participate in blended learning through the system while fully distance students will be able to access all coursework. Instructors will have tools to host live lectures and house them in Canvas as well as document attendance, assignments and all communication to students. Here is a small list of the features:
· Access your course materials online 24/7
· Submit assignments
· Access grades and feedback
· Find lecture recordings
· Access multimedia content and resources for learning outside of the lecture
· To discuss and share ideas
We cannot wait for you to experience Canvas. We are confident that you will enjoy the ease of communicating with your instructors, access to the app, and live session recordings.
More information will be forthcoming. Please monitor your e-mails closely.
