Next.IU investigates the tools and approaches that extend the capabilities of Canvas and support diverse learning environments. It is also a platform for digital learning options powered by Unizin.
Participating faculty are currently piloting student response systems, proctoring tools, and web collaboration tools in their courses. In-progress pilots include:
As students evolve, so do the systems and tools that shape the way we engage, educate, and inspire them.
That’s where Next.IU comes in.
The pilot program goes beyond the latest trends to discover which technologies best serve IU’s needs for education—in the traditional classroom and flipped, hybrid, and fully-online learning environments.

Next.IU launched as a two-year pilot program to explore the next generation of learning technologies. The program evaluated three learning management systems (LMS)—Canvas by Instructure, Desire2Learn, and Blackboard. In 2014, the university selected Canvas as the successor to Oncourse.*
Recently adopted tools include:
* Oncourse will revert to "read only" access after summer 2016. It will no longer be available for active teaching.
