If you are in a school or have a lots of students to manage. And you need to have a full curriculum represented online, to have the ability to track students' assignments and their grades, Canvas can be a great tool to use. It was easy to be onboard with their customer support. And the productivities can be improved significantly.

EverFi is a cost-effective way to push out training to staff. Some of the pieces of training are much more updated than others. If using the tool, review the training in-depth before sending them out to make sure that they are appropriate for your team.

EverFi

  • EverFi's online learning modules and coalition resources provide cutting-edge prevention education to collegiate members.
  • The annual Campus Prevention Network Summit has become a highly anticipated professional development opportunity for individuals working in higher education prevention. Not only does the experience provide exceptional education programs, but it also affords those attending the opportunity to interact and connect with prevention experts from around the country.
  • EverFi's Prevention Diagnostic Tools allows for benchmarking of educational programs, resources, and strategic initiatives. The feedback provided allows for campuses and organizations to critically assess how effective current efforts measure up in relation to evidence-based approaches.

Cons

Canvas

  • Their integration with Big Blue Button was a bust for distance learning. Would be great to see them collaborate with Zoom or Google Meets.
  • Their "feature request" process is slow and cumbersome at times because it relies on user "up votes" to get ideas addressed by the developers.
  • They seem to have a lot of turn-over with their staff. We get a new Customer Success Manager far more frequently than with other vendors.

EverFi

  • The administration portal felt clunky with an outdated user interface.
  • Assigning courses could be tedious, it was hard to know what notifications employees were receiving.

The other LMS tools have fallen behind. One reason is they are not able to update their systems, features, toolsets in a timely manner. While other LMS providers release bug fixes and new features several times a year, schools struggle to install and implement them in a timely manner. It is not uncommon for a school to take 6 months to a year to fully install and implement new releases on other LMS platforms. With Canvas, those features are released every 3 weeks, and there is nothing for a school to do other than choose to turn them on once released. This has allowed Instructure to innovate faster, and get new features and tools to customers quicker. Other factors include great pricing, customer support, and the innovative way in which LTI is implemented in the tool.

The functions in Canvas are well integrated and consistent across the application, and mostly intuitive. Overall navigation and setup is streamlined through integrated features and navigation. The feedback we've gotten from our program participants is that it is easy to learn to use. It also integrates well with third party software like Google Docs and Blackboard Collaborate web conferencing software

I do not personally use Canvas support since we have a central office that helps us. However, our central office always has the answers we need and are always able to solve our issues - so I would assume that get great support from the Canvas team on their end. They also offer great training, which uses materials directly from Canvas

Customer and client services vary depending on account representatives. Frequent changes in staff assigned as our client manager has not allowed for much personalized service.

Once you purchase and sign the contract there is nothing to install or hardware to buy. You can almost immediately start using it and have courses up and going within weeks. We signed in December and had pilot courses online ready to go for the start of school in January

Alternatives Considered

Canvas

Canvas provided the most modern UI, which remains intuitive despite holding a significant feature set. The ability to manage a portfolio of online courses through the blueprinting feature really set this apart from our past LMS's, which provided significant cost savings and investment in hiring personnel. Ease of use and mobile friendly approach provided massive advantages that truly shone through as the pandemic hit and all faculty at all of our locations were required to use the LMS significantly. We are incredibly grateful to have been with Canvas during this time.

EverFi

We need EverFi in addition to Lessonly because EverFi had a robust compliance catalog and we did not have time internally to create compliance materials on Lessonly. EverFi filled an important catalog-based need for us, while Lessonly allowed us to author short courses for our employees.
