In the following academic year, CourseWorks will switch from using Sakai (the CourseWorks we all know and sometimes-not-really love) to Canvas, a learning management system created by Instructure. Some classes have already made the switch, providing students with a glimpse of what is yet to come. While the site itself is pretty, the impending future […]

CCSC holds weekly meetings. Brian Wagner attended one of them last night. This is what he saw. The meeting opened with a discussion of a new committee.
