It appears as if the entire USF System will be making a Learning Management System switch from Blackboard to Instructure’s Canvas. Although we still have not received “official” word, we have prepared some training opportunities and compiled resources for those who are interested in learning more about Canvas and getting a jump start on the possible transition. Check out our Professional Development page for more information about the following workshops.
A introduction to the Canvas interface from a student and faculty perspective. It will provide a demonstration of the highlights of Canvas and explain some of the differences between Canvas and Blackboard.
The Great Migration
An introduction to the migration process for getting a course from Blackboard to Canvas. The course is limited to 10 participants since it will intensively ‘hands-on’ with DL staff available to help faculty get started.
The open lab will give faculty an opportunity to sit down at a computer to work on their class with DL staff available to answer questions and provide assistance.
Instructure’s Getting Started with Canvas
A course offered through Canvas that is designed to walk you through the process of building your first Canvas course, step by step.
