Indiana University recently selected the Canvas learning management system (LMS) as the successor to Oncourse. IU has turned its focus toward exploring tools that complement and extend the platform's capabilities.
New fall pilots include three video management systems: Ensemble Video, Kaltura MediaSpace, and Canvas’ built-in video capabilities. IU has also obtained a system-wide license for Respondus LockDown Browser and Respondus Monitor—two products that increase the security and protect the integrity of non-proctored, online testing within Canvas.
The VoiceThread and Piazza pilots, which started in the spring, are continuing for an additional semester. Both are integrated with Canvas and Oncourse.

As students evolve, so do the systems and tools that shape the way we engage, educate, and inspire them.
Next.IU is a program to discover what might be next for teaching and learning technologies at Indiana University. The Next trials do more than explore the latest trends. They investigate the tools and approaches that best support IU's pursuit of excellence in the classroom and beyond.
Going forward, the program will concentrate on pilots that complement and extend the capabilities of Canvas, particularly those serving the needs of flipped, hybrid, and fully-online classes.
