LMS Comparison Demos

Schoology vs Canvas

Dike-New Hartford has been doing research into a few recommended Learning Management Systems. As we continue to develop and grow our Digital Learning Environment, we need to decide which LMS is best for our teachers and learners. We have narrowed our selection to Schoology or Canvas. Next week, representatives from each LMS will be presenting a webinar where they will showcase their product's features and give you time to ask specific questions. Schoology's webinar is Tuesday from 3:30-4:30 and Canvas's is Wednesday from 3:30-4:30. You can attend the webinar at your own computer or attend the group webinar at the specified location. See specifics for joining each Webinar below.

It is strongly recommended that you watch these webinars. Please test your links prior to the webinars. They will be recorded for you to view later. This will directly affect junior high and high school instructors. This is also beneficial for elementary teachers as our access to digital tools continue to expand.
