TritonEd: What's New


Goodbye, TritonEd! Hello, Canvas!

Starting Summer 2020, TritonEd will no longer serve as UC San Diego's learning management system (LMS). At this time, TritonEd will be unavailable to the community.

Instructors can now use Canvas , UC San Diegos's new LMS!

For more information about the migration, please visit https://edtech.ucsd.edu.

Tips from UC San Diego Canvas Instructors

  • "Make the switch! Start with a 'Blank Canvas' and build your course from scratch to avoid cloning TritonEd/Blackboard. It's worth the time and effort!"

  • "Start now (no sense waiting). Utilize the training (I did 1 in person session, as well as a few phone consults with [EdTech Support]). Take notes each time, as it slips the mind after the initial learning."

  • "Be sure to leave time to get acquainted with the platform. It's generally very intuitive but there are definitely things that can be a little hard to find until you get used to where they are."

  • "Map out your structure ahead of time, and then fill in assignments/content as you go."
