Canvas is the University of Wolverhampton’s new Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) which is replacing WOLF/WLVglobal for learning and teaching from the academic year 2017/18.
..but what does that mean?
Modules starting before 1 August 2017
If your module starts before the 1 August 2017, you will be using WOLF/WLVglobal and will finish that module in WOLF/WLVglobal.
Once you have finished your module in WOLF/WLVglobal and completed your enrolment for the next academic year (if you are returning to the University), you will be using Canvas.
Modules starting on or after 1 August 2017
If your module starts on or after the 1 August 2017, you will be using Canvas.
You will not be able to access Canvas or your modules in Canvas until you have completed your enrolment and module registration in e:Vision for the academic year 2017/18.
You will still be able to access your previous modules, assessment submissions and feedback in WOLF/WLVglobal, but you won’t be able to change anything (read-only). These will not be copied over to Canvas, therefore, we strongly advise that you download any assessment submissions, feedback or documents you want from WOLF/WLVglobal.
Canvas will be used to support modules, courses and co-curricular activity which relates directly to students’ academic learning. Please refer to the ‘Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) Operational Policy’, which can be found at www.wlv.ac.uk/polsregs, for more information about the use of Canvas.
If you use WOLF/WLVglobal for purposes which are not defined as learning and teaching, e.g. document management, meeting management etc., please continue to use WOLF/WLVglobal until an alternative solution has been identified.
