After careful consideration and evaluation by Duke Learning Innovation (DLI) and the Office of Information Technology (OIT), Duke University and Duke Kunshan University are moving from our current learning management system (LMS), Sakai, to the Canvas platform. 



We are optimistic about the opportunities this transition represents for the Duke community, and are eager to see how Canvas will transform the teaching experience at Duke.
