We Were Robbed!

ELearning participated in the door decorating contest for the first time this year for Fall Fest. We got 2nd place- not bad for a first time. Look out, because next year we’re going to rock it!

Tomorrow is the actual Fall Fest. Many of our departments will be selling goodies, such as caramel apples and mugshots. There will also be bull riding, a jump house, and other fun stuff!

Come enjoy the festivities, because we sure will. Also, don’t forget to dress up for Halloween! #Winning #Halloween #Fun

Let’s get back to the simple things in life…

26 Feb

Let's get back to the simple things in life...

Thanks to Canvas, eLearning is about to get much easier. With no-nonsense open source software, self-updates, and integrating with Facebook and LinkedIn, Canvas is the better (and more simple) alternative learning management system.

Say goodbye to those endless error messages and lack of support. So long antiquated interfaces and lack of design freedom. Peace out to problematic updates.

Goodbye, Blackboard. Hello, Canvas.
