Major progress in the transition to Canvas

During the 2020-2021 academic year, Rutgers made major strides in its initiative to make Canvas the university’s official learning management system (LMS).

In an effort to streamline information technology support at Rutgers, the OIT Help Desk now provides technical assistance for Canvas and Sakai.  You can now call one phone number, 833-OIT-HELP, for help with everything from Canvas to Zoom, Rutgers Connect, and NetIDs.
