Penn State ITS offers hands-on as well as self-paced workshops: Canvas Training Schedule


As the fall 2016 semester began, we moved out of our Canvas transition's ramp-up phase into the College/Campus Migration & Conversion Phase. During this time period, we were actively working to ensure that all ANGEL courses have been transitioned to Canvas before ANGEL becomes unavailable. We continue to focus on this transition for Spring 2017.

When will ANGEL no longer be available?

  • ANGEL's end-of-life date will be in December 2017.
  • Courses will not be taught in ANGEL after June 30, 2017.
  • To allow time to move content to Canvas and for students to complete deferred grades, instructors will be able to access ANGEL online through October 31, 2017.
