Despite being in the middle of lockdown when we moved VLEs, we have had brilliant adoption of the system, with every area of study having a Canvas course. Staff and students alike find it to be a user-friendly, engaging, and straight-forward experience on both desktop and mobile platforms through the web and apps.
