At the end of the fall 2021 semester, Canvas/Instructure will provide custom training to prepare faculty for the transition from Blackboard to Canvas. Training will take place December 14-16, on Zoom, via live 90-minute sessions. There will be six sessions, each covering a different aspect of the transition to Canvas. Registration is required. Attendance for these sessions is capped at 100 participants each, so we encourage interested parties to RSVP for individual sessions now.

Growing with Canvas

All faculty have Canvas accounts and are enrolled in Growing with Canvas, an optional course made of self-paced modules that walk instructors through Canvas features. Each instructor also has a “sandbox” site that can be used to test out the Canvas features presented in the training modules. 

Differences Between Blackboard and Canvas

Canvas course sites are structured a little differently from Blackboard course sites. The video below highlights the navigation menu, modules, pages, and course links in Canvas, to help you start thinking about what it will be like to move your course content from Blackboard into Canvas.

Blank Prep Sites 

If you would like blank prep sites to be created in Canvas for you, please complete the Canvas Blank Prep Site Request form. You may request blank sites to build your spring 2022 courses in Canvas, or to begin migrating your course content from Blackboard to Canvas as you look ahead to future semesters. Follow the link below to complete the Canvas Blank Prep Site Request form. The next batch of blank Canvas prep sites will be generated on December 10th.
