Canvas @ Princeton

Students studying


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. The transition will be complete in the Spring of 2022.

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.
