In 5 steps ...

  • Save assessment marks

Make sure all marks are downloaded from the Blackboard Grade Centre before 31 July 2020 as these do not copy into Canvas.

  • Engage with training

Prepare to build and deliver engaging Canvas courses for the new academic year by booking a space on a Canvas webinar. Access the online Canvas Orientation course at any time and work through it at your own pace.

  • Review all of your archived courses

Access your 17/18, 18/19 and 19/20 courses. Review the content and, if required, edit the availability of content ensuring all information is appropriate for student view and then publish the course

19/20 courses should be published by 24 July 2020 and 17/18 and 18/19 by the 31 July when access to Blackboard ends for all colleagues and students.

See Canvas FAQs for more information on which content does not copy into Canvas.

  • Build your 2020-21 courses

Use the Canvas course template, automatically applied to your 2020-21 Canvas courses, and the Flexible Learning 2020 support materials to help you to create an engaging course home page and design an effective course structure for the 2020-21 academic year.
