QUB Canvas Roadmap

The QUB Roadmap process has continued to develop from the inception on Canvas within the University in 2018.

In early 2022 upon reflection on the then current request based process the Education Committee Student Experience Group Endorsed the process should progress to a requirement based process, which aligns with Institutional Priorities.

The Updated process allows for a higher level and holistic approach. Requirements are prioritised on a Value-Exposure based matrix where by the Faculties raising the requirement will score its value based on a set of agreed criteria. The DLSSS team will then analyse these in priority order.

Note: Requirements may not be fulfilled by a solution within Canvas, the DLSSS team will explore a number of avenues to provide users with the most appropriate outcome.
