Future Learning Management System

Texas State chooses Canvas as new system

On Wednesday, May 22, 2019, Gene Bourgeois, Texas State University's Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, and Ken Pierce, Vice President for Information Technology and CIO, announced that Canvas has been chosen as the university's new learning management system (LMS). It will replace the current tool, TRACS.

In their announcement, Bourgeois and Pierce wrote:

"This decision is the culmination of more than two years of research by staff in the Division of Information Technology (DOIT) and the Office of Distance and Extended Learning (ODEL). Hundreds of students, faculty, and staff members tested the systems and provided feedback. The information from these efforts was combined into a report and presented to the Learning Management System Advisory Committee on May 15. The committee unanimously recommended to us that Canvas be chosen as Texas State’s new LMS."
