Be Canvas Ready
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.

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.

Publish your 2020-21 courses
