About the Transition

Washington University in St. Louis is moving from Blackboard to Canvas for our Learning Management System (LMS). Beginning June 2019, Blackboard will no longer be available for teaching. All courses will be taught in Canvas.

Faculty and instructors who have not yet migrated their courses to Canvas should sign up to receive a demo course, access to communications and training materials. If you plan to use content from a course in a different LMS, such as Blackboard, be sure to visit the Course Content Migration page.
