Canvas will be our only learning management system for the spring 2017 semester. Faculty are responsible for saving all course materials and any student information from Blackboard they may need to access. We will slowly phase out older Blackboard classes, according to the timeline below.
Faculty can access help guides that outline the steps to save various course materials from Blackboard on the Center for Teaching and Learning website at https://ctl.morainevalley.edu/lms-change.
Moraine Valley’s learning management system is transitioning from Blackboard to Canvas. During fall 2016 semester, some classes will use Blackboard and some will use Canvas. During spring 2017 semester, Canvas will be used to access course materials.
Your faculty member should be communicating with you so that you know where to access your course materials. If you are unsure, please try the following steps to locate your course on the first day of class:
Step 1: Login to Blackboard. Look for your course in the “My Courses” box. If a link to your course is available, click it to go to the course. Check the Announcements page for information about your course. There may be a message indicating that the course is using Canvas.
Step 2: Login to Canvas. Click the “Courses” link on the left side of the screen, then the “All Courses” link. Locate your course. In the far right, check to see of the course if the course is published. If the course is published, click the course link to access the course.
Step 3: If you still cannot locate your course in Blackboard or Canvas, please contact your instructor for further information. Please be aware, some classes may not use a learning management system.
Learn Canvas by using Canvas! When you login to Canvas, at the top of the screen you will see an announcement inviting you to join our “Student: Canvas Training and Resources” course. Please join the course and browse the resources available to learn how to use Canvas. To learn more about Canvas, please see the Canvas Guides and Videos.
