While we wait for our new Canvas system to be configured for users, the eLearning Team are taking a look behind the scenes to see what new and interesting tools will come online when we move to our new Central Learning Environment. While the final UoM configuration of Canvas is still in the works, the features we’ve highlighted here all come as standard, and as such, will be ready to use from day one.
