During the spring semester, the university announced plans to migrate from Blackboard to the Canvas Learning Management System. A transition of this magnitude is a major undertaking, though it should present new opportunities to improve learning experiences for our students. The Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering is working in partnership with colleagues at UTO, ASU Online, and other schools and colleges to develop a migration plan that best supports our faculty, intended to ensure the smoothest transition possible.
ASU’s current Blackboard LMS will run in parallel to Canvas and may be used for courses until the end of the Spring 2019 semester. Blackboard will be unavailable to users after June 30, 2019. Archival access to Blackboard courses will be available two years beyond that date.
Workshops and trainings
Join us this Fall for the Canvas Works training on Tuesday, October 9, 2018! The Fulton Schools, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, EdPlus, the University Technology Office and the ASU Librarians have partnered to provide this unique Canvas training experience. The September session was at capacity and well received!
The format of the October event will be eight 20-minute presentations that you will be able to visit in any order you choose. This multi-station training will feature a variety of Canvas related topics. In addition to these stations, we will have a “genius bar” with the UTO Canvas Support team to help answer questions!
