Canvas Has Arrived
Coastline Community College has chosen Canvas as its next online learning management system (LMS). Canvas will replace the college's proprietary Seaport system.
"Seaport has served us very well for over a decade," says Bob Nash, Associate Dean of Distance Learning. "Looking ahead, we wanted to find a more advanced LMS that incorporates the latest interactive technology and encourages student engagement, one that can be accessed by desktops and mobile devices alike, and one that makes it all seamless so instructors and students can focus on the teaching and learning."
Canvas is a state-of-the-art learning management system known for its intuitive, easy to use navigation. Its powerful features are especially designed for engaging students and allowing faculty and students to interact more often and more effectively with each other via text, video, and audio.
California's Online Education Initiative (OEI) has chosen Canvas as its common course management system (CCMS) and has recommended it for use by community colleges statewide. Learn more about why Coastline and the OEI chose Canvas in this CCMS Video produced by the OEI.
Beginning with the summer 2016 term (starting June 13), all Coastline online courses will be offered in Canvas. The Seaport system will be retired. For information on how to access Canvas, please see our "Online Course Access" page.
If you'd like to learn more about how to use the Canvas system, we encourage you to visit the Canvas Guides Website , which offers video tutorials and "how-to" instructions for both students and faculty. If you are a student using Canvas at Coastline and you have a technical problem using the system, go to our Canvas Help Support page.
