Camp Canvas

For the past few years PALCS has been examining other Learning Management Systems (LMS) to ensure that the one we are using for our school is the best possible product. All leading LMS were explored. The one that stood out to PALCS was Canvas, and upon initial inspection it became clear that Canvas was the front runner.
We have added Canvas to our current tools (Moodle, Compass, Rosetta Stone) for instruction. It was used for 6-12 summer school in 2015 and in sixth grade in the 2015-2016 school year. During the 2015-2016 school year, we trained all staff during multiple Professional Development sessions (Camp Canvas) from initial design concepts to best practices for online instruction in Canvas. We used a badging system as teachers worked on modules and challenges in our online course hub.
