Introduction to CCC & Moodle/Canvas

What is Moodle and  WHAT IS CANVAS?

Welcome to online courses at Central Community College!

Central Community College has begun the transition from Moodle, our current learning management system, to the Canvas LMS. 

Canvas is a popular LMS for higher education institutions in Nebraska. Canvas is used by the University of Nebraska

WebCentral view of Moodle and Canvas courses

 and by most community colleges in the state. Canvas has many features that help you manage your course assignments and communicate with your instructor.

You will access your courses in Moodle or in Canvas or in some cases both by going to the My Courses tab in WebCentral and clicking on the course name link to access your course.

You will be able to tell which LMS your course(s) are in by either the Moodle logo for Moodle courses or no logo for Canvas courses.
