At Elsevier, we are committed to delivering the best products for healthcare education, and it is our mission to enable you to achieve superior outcomes in your program and with your students.
In order for us to deliver on that mission, it is essential for us to focus on what we do best, while working to ensure that our products fit as seamlessly as possible in your learning ecosystem.
To that end, you may have heard us talk throughout this past fall about our next generation of products coming in 2018. For the first time, we are building many new products that will be mobile-optimized and will be interoperable with major learning management systems. In tandem with that change, we will also be discontinuing Elsevier's existing learning management system later this spring.
What does this mean for you?
As we reaffirm our focus on providing leading, world-class, instructional resources for healthcare education, we are also excited to provide you with a choice you have been asking for — it is now your choice when it comes to selecting a learning management system*! While we recognize all the benefits having this choice brings, we also recognize it will require preparing for change — and we are going to help you get through it.
If you have been using Elsevier products on Elsevier's existing LMS, we want to help you prepare for your "move." Like any move, there are five basic steps: 1) planning; 2) packing; 3) moving; 4) unpacking; and 5) organizing. These are the same steps we are going to help you through to make your move to your new LMS as smooth as possible. In each step, we will let you know what we will be doing, what you will need to do, and what actions you will want to be asking your LMS provider to take.
You will be hearing more from the Elsevier team over the coming weeks. In the meantime, I’d like to invite you to register for one of our upcoming pre-recorded webinars, where members of my team will be providing more specifics about this move, our new products, and how they will work in the major learning management systems.
Thank you for your ongoing partnership. At Elsevier, we value you and the work you do beyond words. If you have any questions or concerns, please visit evolvesupport.elsevier.com.

* If you do not have one of the major, supported learning management systems, you will be able to use an instance of Canvas that we will be making available to our customers who need it.
