SPH Transition to Canvas
The Office of E-Learning Services will be coordinating the transition from Moodle to Canvas for the School of Public Health for online and face-to-face courses, as well as continuing education. The transition will happen in four phases: needs analysis and research; development and testing; training and professional development; and implementation. This site will keep you updated as we progress through the phases.

Students who are interested in addressing student experience decisions on the transition should consider joining our student advisory board.
This spring, ELS and the working groups will be focused on:
- Synthesizing the results of the faculty needs assessment and developing SPH-specific trainings to complement offerings from Central UMN services.
- Developing and testing templates for use in online and face-to-face/hybrid courses.
- Identifying process changes, specifically as they pertain to course listing timelines and TA assignment entry into Peoplesoft.
- Continuing to discuss our needs with OIT regarding continuing education, Public Health Institute courses, and others as we identify them.
We are currently in the Needs Analysis & Research phase of the transition.
Four working groups and a faculty Canvas team have been established to guide the transition. Staff groups are working on course support practices, course administration processes, continuing education, and non-academic training/orientation for students.
