Starting in Winter term 2015 and continuing through Fall term 2015, Oregon State University is transitioning from the Blackboard platform to a new learning management system called Canvas. By the January 2016, all faculty using a learning management system will use Canvas.
This is a university-wide transition that includes all modalities of courses taught at Oregon State: traditional face-to-face, hybrid, Ecampus online, and continuing education courses.
Use this site to learn more about Canvas, details about the transition timeline, and the support OSU is offering during the transition.
The transition to the Canvas LMS is a first step in a broader initiative, Learn@OregonState. Learn@OregonState will be a complete learning ecosystem that will allow the OSU community to manage a broad array of teaching and learning resources in one succinct space.
