Previous LMS For Schools Moving to Canvas in US and Canada

Commentary by Stephen Downes

Nice analysis of LMS migration (though limited as always to the U.S. and Canada - I wish e-literate would adopt a more international focus). Two major things are highlighted: first, a substantial portion of the the growth of Instructure's Canvas is coming from Blackboard Learn (and the bulk of the rest is from older LMSs such as WebCT and Angel). Canvas has also attracted some conversion from Moodle, but Moodle has grown so rapidly it doesn't really matter. Second, it is worth noting that D2L's Brightspace has a nearly 100% retention rate. Once people sign on with the platform, for the most part, they don't leave.
