Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I go for help transitioning to Canvas?

You can contact the EEE team for assistance at eee-support@uci.edu or 949-824-2222. We also offer in-person 1-on-1 Canvas assistance sessions that you can book online.

We've also created a helpful Canvas Transition Guide →

For help with effectively teaching using digital tools, the Division of Teaching Excellence & Innovation (DTEI) offers teaching consultations and one-on-one support.

What's going on?

We've hit a crossroads: technologies have evolved in complexity and variety, as have the needs of students, faculty, and campus staff. The EEE Legacy system has become challenging to maintain due to its age. Enhancements have become impractical and in some cases not feasible.

After consultation with the campus, we are moving away from dependence on the 20-year-old home-grown EEE Legacy website, to a new model supporting a broader ecosystem of tools. The Canvas learning management system, named EEE+ Canvas here at UCI, forms the core of this new ecosystem and provides a comprehensive set of tools to manage courses.

When is all of this going to happen?

We are approaching the final year of the transition, and expect to complete it in November of 2020. At this time, all of the EEE Legacy systems will be taken offline, being replaced by new EEE+ tools, or features found in Canvas.

As we focus on rebuilding tools such as Evaluations and Rapid Return, we will have a moratorium on non-essential development for the remaining duration of the transition. Learn more about the moratorium at: http://sites.uci.edu/moratorium

What's going to happen to the EEE Legacy Survey tool?

OIT has coordinated a University-wide enterprise site license for the Qualtrics survey platform. This full-featured survey platform is available to both the main campus and the Medical Center, and can be used by faculty, staff, and students. Learn more about Qualtrics and other survey tools available for use at UCI →

What about the other tools on EEE Legacy (like Class Mail Lists, Evaluations, Quiz, etc.)?

Each tool on the EEE Legacy course management system will be considered individually.

For tools with clear and quality replacements in Canvas (Quiz is a good example) we will help you move content and processes from EEE Legacy to Canvas.

For tools that don't have obvious or adequate replacements in Canvas, we will either rebuild those tools in-house or identify other options.

The Office of Information Technology maintains a comprehensive list of EEE Legacy tools, their current status, and the general plan for their future.
