About the Transition to Canvas
UCI is in the midst of a multi-year transition from our homegrown learning management system, EEE, to an expanded ecosystem of educational technologies.
At the center of this transition is Canvas, a modern learning management system that includes a robust toolset, integration with campus authentication and data systems, plus opportunities connect to a variety of supplemental services developed here on campus or by third party providers.
