Transition Timeline

Beginning June 1, 2021, and continuing over the next 2 years, all self-paced classes at MU will be migrating from the MU Self-Paced Platform to One Canvas. We will be sunsetting the Self-Paced Platform by Oct. 1, 2023; Spring 2023 classes will be the last classes that can use the Self-Paced Platform.

Instructors of self-paced classes will be able to choose when to begin teaching the class within One Canvas. Generally, we recommend that instructors begin developing their self-paced class within One Canvas 3–6 months before they plan to offer their class within One Canvas.

Instructors of self-paced classes should fill out this survey to let us know when you would like to begin migrating your content to One Canvas, and what assistance you would like during the process. Please note that self-paced classes can be run on the Self-Paced Platform while simultaneously being developed in One Canvas; similarly, classes can operate in a hybrid state between the two platforms to help with ease of transition. Please note this on the survey if you would like to do this.

Please reach out to us at if you have any questions or concerns.

Benefits of transition:

  • One Canvas will provide a better, more consistent learning environment for our students.

  • Moving to one learning management system will make it easier for our students to access their classes.

  • Moving to One Canvas will provide more flexibility and access for our faculty and instructors to develop and update their self-paced classes.


I have an internship course on the Self-Paced Platform. Will that continue?

Internship courses may continue to be offered on the Self-Paced Platform until it sunsets. We are exploring other alternatives for these courses; we welcome any ideas or suggestions for software/technology to help support the internship courses.
