Countdown to Canvas: June 30, 2020

Blackboard shuts down at Thomas Jefferson University on June 30, 2020. Canvas, the university’s new learning management system, is learner-centered, intuitive, and will save faculty and students time!


Contact us for help transitioning your courses from Blackboard to Canvas. Attend our upcoming online workshops, schedule a one-on-one Canvas Consultation, and access on-demand tutorials to go at your own pace.  


If your courses aren’t yet on Canvas, you can still get to know the new LMS. Check out some of our Student How-To Guides to get started. If you need technical assistance with Canvas, review this Canvas Student Guide or our Getting Help Guide.

To learn more about Canvas, our timeline for implementation, and what you can do to prepare for the transition, read this article.
