March 9th marked the official launch of Missouri Online. While you will see our new name, Missouri Online, paired with “Office of eLearning” in the coming months, our support is not changing. We will continue to support you as you teach fully online, in person and everything in between.
You are now able to access the new, UM System-wide instance of Canvas to develop classes for the Fall 2021 semester. Get more information on the new Canvas instance as well as the move by checking out our One Canvas Unification FAQs.
