Penn State begins transition from ANGEL to Canvas | Penn State University
After conducting two successful faculty pilots in 2015, the spring 2016 semester will be a ramp-up period to begin the process of the full University-wide adoption of Canvas at Penn State. Course shells are available in Canvas for instructors who want to use Canvas for the spring and summer 2016 semesters, but the use of Canvas is not mandatory. Instructors may continue to teach their courses in ANGEL for now. The last semester that courses will be taught in ANGEL will be spring 2017.
