Prepare to teach your course using Canvas in fall 2018! All fall courses now have a Canvas course site. Faculty can migrate Blackboard course content to Canvas in preparation for the fall semester or use the Canvas request system located in the Canvas “Help” menu to submit a request for a course migration.

UMKC Online offers free Canvas training sessions with topics ranging from Canvas 101 to creating assignments and tests. To see the variety of trainings and to register, visit the UMKC Online Workshops page.

Not ready to transition to Canvas yet? Faculty may still use Blackboard by requesting a Blackboard course site. Simply log into Blackboard, navigate to the “Request System” tab along the top of Blackboard, and  complete the “Blackboard Course Site Request” form.

Summer 2019 marks the final opportunity to transition to Canvas. By fall 2019, all online courses will be taught in Canvas and Blackboard will no longer be available. Additional information is available on the UMKC Canvas Transition website. As the transition progresses, the site will be updated with current information and additional resources.
