Are your classes ready for the march into Summer? Let the Digital Learning team help you make sure that you’re set to bid farewell to Blackboard and say hello to Canvas.
Canvas Basics Sessions

About Canvas at UNO
Senior Vice Chancellor, BJ Reed announced that UNO would investigate Canvas to determine its feasibility as a learning management system for the campus. Faculty and students tested and provided feedback. Exploration began with a group of faculty and students working with a Canvas testing space (a “sandbox”) starting in late September and early October.
Several workshops were offered to help faculty get familiar with using Canvas. Recordings of these sessions are available for viewing.
In the spring 2017 semester, a group of faculty taught using Canvas. At the conclusion of this investigation, faculty and student input will be included in a recommendation that will be forwarded to the Senior Vice Chancellor, BJ Reed.
