Canvas by Instructure logo

Wartburg College is excited to transition to Canvas, our new learning management system (LMS), in the fall of 2022. A learning management system is the application through which members of a class engage with their instructor and with their instructor, each other, and the content matter of the course. Activities might include viewing course materials, uploading assignments, seeing announcements, engaging in online discussions, and tracking grades.

This learning management system allows us to analyze information that will enhance our ability to make data-informed decisions and provide early intervention to increase student success across campus.

Below is information about the transition that will be helpful to you as a student, graduate student, or faculty member.

Canvas, the system we will be transitioning to, is a state-of-the-art system that will allow for an enhanced student experience both in the web browser and through the mobile application.

In Fall Term 2022, some courses will be on the new Canvas learning management system (LMS) while others will be on My.Wartburg, which has historically been our LMS. The list of courses with the LMS is available on My.Wartburg. You must be logged into My.Wartburg to access this list. Your faculty member will remind you in class which system you are on. In the Winter Term 2023, all courses will be on the Canvas LMS. 

You can login to Canvas here, but you must be logged into Office 365 to access Canvas. If you need assistance logging into Office 365, contact or 319-352-8767. 

We asked faculty who were interested in transitioning their courses to Canvas this fall to be early adopters. Having this early adopter pilot phase this fall allows for a smoother transition, as we can train those instructors and transition their courses. This group of early adopters will assist in helping others in Winter Term 2023. A course list is available on My.Wartburg. You must be logged into My.Wartburg to access this list.

Yes, you will still access resources, such as advising information, registration, and other resources, in My.Wartburg
