Recently, the Provost, Deans and University Technology Advisory Committee (UTAC) have all approved the adoption of the Canvas learning management system as a replacement for Blackboard. The migration to Canvas from Blackboard will happen over the course of one calendar year, and be completed by June 2018.
What this means for faculty is that at some point during the upcoming year faculty will transition from using Blackboard for any online course materials to Canvas. It also means that any new online or blended courses will be developed directly in Canvas and bypass Blackboard completely. STELAR has planned a lot of support and training opportunities for faculty and students to help with the transition from Blackboard to Canvas.
