- [00:00:02.370]What the other instructors should know about Canvas
- [00:00:05.954]is that, if they had any reservations about Blackboard,
- [00:00:09.899]if they'd had any bad experiences or just difficulties,
- [00:00:15.159]they're going to find that those difficulties
- [00:00:18.065]are not in Canvas.
- [00:00:20.939]The interface is more fluid,
- [00:00:24.719]it really allows you to just do your work without fighting
- [00:00:28.321]through the mazes of whether it be
- [00:00:33.694]just the way things are worded or
- [00:00:35.859]some of the key words in Blackboard.
- [00:00:41.028]That doesn't really exist in Canvas.
- [00:00:44.518]And so, I think that the easiest way
- [00:00:51.841]to get instructors' fears allayed
- [00:00:55.881]when it comes to Canvas is to just say, try it.
- [00:01:00.343]And once they try it, it will prove to be
- [00:01:04.357]something that they'll wanna stick with.
- [00:01:06.603]Now there are some instructors who don't use Blackboard
- [00:01:09.574]and so maybe won't use Canvas,
- [00:01:12.315]but I think that the number of instructors
- [00:01:15.254]in that situation will become fewer and fewer,
- [00:01:18.183]just because that's the way the university is moving,
- [00:01:21.024]that's the way the world is moving.
