Blackboard to Canvas: Need help?

As previously announced, Rowan University is transitioning its learning management system from Blackboard to Canvas in 2020 to provide a consistent interface for Rowan University students across all colleges and schools and expand the availability of online learning opportunities.

To help with the transition process, Information Resources & Technology, the Faculty Center and Rowan Online are now offering several different Canvas training opportunities for faculty. For more information the University’s transition from Blackboard to Canvas, visit go.rowan.edu/canvas.

Self-Paced Canvas Training Course

Faculty Teaching in Fall 2020

If you are teaching a course in fall 2020, you will gain access to a self-paced training course in Canvas after you create a course shell in Canvas for the fall 2020 semester.

The course, which will be available in your Canvas Dashboard, will show you how to download existing course content from Blackboard and build a new course in Canvas.

Faculty Not Teaching in Fall 2020

If you are not teaching a course in the fall 2020 semester or you have not yet been assigned to teach a course for the fall 2020 semester, you may still enroll in the self-paced training course. Please note that enrollment in the self-paced training course will not provide you with access to develop course materials in Canvas. 

To enroll in the self-paced training course, please visit our enrollment form

Q&A Sessions 

We will be hosting one-hour Webex sessions for employees who have questions about the transition from Blackboard to Canvas. 

We will be accepting questions via chat during the sessions. We will also be recording the sessions, so employees who are unable to tune in for the live sessions can watch on their own time.
