Canvas Transition Project

About

OIT will be replacing Ember with Canvas as our new Learning Management System in May 2017. Canvas is the big sister of Ember and they both share very similar features.

For a limited time, you can explore Canvas using this link: http://st-thomas-university.acme.instructure.com/
When asked to enter an Email, use our test account wchang@stu.edu and at Password, enter AhPTGJjzUXhvVhKAH54t, then click Log in. After you are logged in, there are a few courses available, which you can use to test-drive Canvas. This link will only be available for a limited time so we encourage you to discover Canvas early.
