In March 2018 Professor Martin Williams, Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Education, announced that Canvas had been chosen as the new virtual learning environment (VLE) for the University of Oxford that will replace WebLearn for teaching and learning.
The decision to use Canvas, provided by Instructure, is also the result of a process that began with the 2016 Digital Education Strategy implementation consultation, which identified the need for a more intuitive and user-friendly VLE. Following a rigorous selection process, Canvas was identified as the solution which would provide the best quality of user experience to support teaching and learning at Oxford.
