Canvas @ Princeton
Information about Fall '21 Course Sites
Fall course sites: In the fall semester, all courses will be on Canvas. Blackboard will no longer be available for teaching, although faculty, staff, and students will continue to have archival access to the last seven years of courses on Blackboard. Please direct any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fall 2021 course sites in Canvas will be released in the first week of May. We will send out a notification when the sites are ready. Please know that the McGraw Center will continue to support the transition to Canvas in multiple ways: each faculty member will be paired with an instructional designer for consultations and assistance. We will also offer small-group training sessions for faculty, staff, teaching assistants, and administrators.
Canvas is a robust and intuitive online platform for teaching and learning (also known as a Learning Management System or LMS). Starting in the Spring of 2020, it will gradually replace our longstanding LMS, Blackboard. Please note our updated implementation schedule.
The adoption of Canvas, with its powerful capabilities, marks an exciting new chapter for teaching and learning at Princeton. We feel confident that Canvas not only offers a more user-friendly experience for students, staff, and faculty, but that its tools and features can expand learning activities, improve assessment strategies, and provide new opportunities for collaboration. We hope this change will spark valuable conversations around teaching and enhance pedagogical innovations on our campus.
