Project Timeline

Phase I

UMKC staff, faculty, and students will receive communication about the investigation of a new learning management system. A select group of faculty and staff will participate in a live study of Canvas to create best practices for the broader transition.

Phase II

Faculty choose when to migrate their courses from Blackboard to Canvas. UMKC Online will provide open training sessions and departmental workshops to assist in the transition.

Phase III

The institution will complete the transition to Canvas for all remaining courses and organizations before the Blackboard LMS is no longer available for course work. All previous courses in Blackboard will be archived for accreditation purposes.
