Carleton University’s Learning Management System (cuLearn) is Changing in 2021

Carleton University has decided that a change to our current LMS configuration is necessary to meet the growing needs of faculty, students and staff.

Following broad consultation with the campus community throughout 2019, requirements were developed for a Request for Proposal (RFP), which was issued in November. The university did not receive a proposal from any service provider that offered a Moodle solution, on which our current LMS is based. As a result of the RFP process, three vendors – Blackboard (Learn Ultra), Instructure (Canvas), and D2L (Brightspace) – were shortlisted.

This means Carleton will adopt a new LMS in 2021, with a limited pilot in the winter 2021 term and full adoption in the summer 2021 term.
