Canvas Resources for Students

Getting Ready for the Move to Canvas

The transition from Blackboard to Canvas will begin over the summer (2019), and a select group of faculty will begin using Canvas for their courses in the 2019-2020 school year. So, it is very possible that you may have some of your classes in Canvas and some in Blackboard during the 2019-2020 academic year.

Moody's online programs will be in Canvas beginning July 2020. The content in these courses require a year to be redeveloped to work optimally in Canvas.

Beginning July 1, 2020, all instructors will begin using Canvas because Blackboard will be gone.

You will lose access to all of your coursework in Blackboard on July 1, 2020. Before you lose access, we encourage you to retrieve any course syllabi and/or submitted work that you think you might need from current courses. Whether you are an undergraduate or graduate student, we recommend that you save as much Blackboard coursework to your own computer as you can because you may need this information later. (Note: In your Blackboard courses, you can access your submitted work via My Grades.)

We think that you will love using Canvas! Canvas is more user-friendly than Blackboard and is much easier to navigate. We will make it as simple as possible to go back and forth between Blackboard and Canvas during this transition period.

Be sure to set your notification preferences in Canvas. Otherwise, you may miss important course announcements.
