Canvas by instructure


Only a few pilot courses will be taught in Canvas during the Fall 2015 semester. The window for requesting to be part of the pilot program has closed. If you are not part of the pilot program, your Fall 2015 classes will appear in Blackboard as usual. However, all faculty will have access to their Fall 2015 courses within Canvas to allow for training and establishing comfort with the new system before it becomes the official campus-wide LMS in the Spring 2016 semester. If you have any questions about using Canvas please contact us.
