Online learning is rapidly emerging within nursing education. The purpose of this project was to provide a unified and consistent user interface in the new Canvas™ learning management system (LMS) for students and faculty and to promote super users who would assist faculty in a seamless transition from Oncourse™ to Canvas™.Curriculum templates were provided within the LMS for nursing courses and numerous training opportunities with designated super users.Faculty reported feeling either competent (57%) or very competent (36%) in their ability to use Canvas™ LMS after implementation of the project; survey comments reflected an overall positive response to the transition to Canvas™.This project resulted in a framework of standardized templates that are student centered and effective for quality online learning.
