Technology Enhanced Learning at Sussex



The University of Sussex has entered into an agreement with leading educational technology provider Instructure, to implement a next-generation virtual learning environment (VLE). From academic year 18/19 Sussex will move from Study Direct (Moodle) to Canvas for both on-campus and online distance learning students.

A cloud-native VLE, Canvas will allow Sussex to significantly enhance its digital teaching and learning space for students and staff, while technical support for the new platform will be available 24/7 from Instructure.

There will be an extensive programme of training and support for staff to demonstrate the features of the new system and to enable users to get familiar with these features ahead of the next academic year

We will be posting regular updates via multiple channels and will aim to keep you updated with developments with the project right up until the system launch and beyond. Please check our Canvas News page for the latest updates.
