Anuradha Sivaraman, assistant professor of business administration at the University of Delaware, received the opportunity to test drive the learning management system Canvas in spring 2012. Using Canvas in one section of a marketing course and Sakai@UD in another section of the same course, Sivaraman was able to compile student feedback as well as experiment with the two management systems.
“I felt like it was easier to use, compared to my first time using Sakai. If you already know Sakai, of course the transition is going to be so much easier. And a lot of features start out being similar to Sakai but then turn out to be much simpler,” Sivaraman said.
