Blackboard Learn is our current Learning Management System (LMS). The Center for Faculty Excellence (Bryan Berrett) and the Academic Technology area in Technology Services (Brent Auernheimer) are coordinating a wide-ranging review of Learning Management Systems vetted by last year's CSU-wide process. Those systems include Blackboard Ultra, Canvas, and Brightspace (formerly D2L).
Anyone can go to Blackboard’s CourseSites and set up - and offer - a class.
You can “Try Canvas Free” (upper right button)
The CSU Chancellor’s office held a webinar, “Instructure/Canvas Overview and Discussion” on August 25: http://csulps.com/2016/08/25/instructurecanvas-overview-and-discussion/
You can also try D2L free.

This is the background information for the CSU-wide master enabling agreement RFP. The result was CSU-wide contracts for Blackboard, Canvas, and D2L.
Maintained by Phil Hil and Michael Feldstein. Great information about the LMS market.
