APU is Moving from Sakai to Canvas

As teaching and learning evolve, so do the systems and tools that shape the way faculty and students engage and interact with one another. After a rigorous, campus-wide, yearlong evaluation, APU selected Canvas as the new learning management system (LMS) to replace Sakai.

The transition to Canvas provides an opportunity for APU faculty to reimagine their courses, revisit content, and ensure accessibility for all learners. To ensure a smooth Sakai-to-Canvas transition, APU will implement a school-by-school transition from Sakai to Canvas over a total of 18 months. Canvas will be available for migration starting spring 2018. Access to Sakai will be available through spring 2019.

We have created the Go Canvas website, where you can find everything you need related to the migration of courses, training and support, and other important information. If you have any questions or need help with Canvas, email us at
