Canvas is Here!

The University of Alabama at Birmingham is excited to announce the introduction of Canvas by Instructure, a new learning management system (LMS) to replace Blackboard Learn. About 25 courses have been integrated into Canvas this summer with a full roll out in fall term of this year.

We believe that an LMS should make life easier – not harder - for teachers and students. Canvas achieves this by allowing you more choices about how you interact with a course. Canvas has an industry leading system of communication that allows you to use anything from text messages to email - and even social media - to send and receive information. It also allows you to access courses with the devices you use every day, with apps for smartphones and tablets that make learning on-the-go a breeze.

Canvas’ user-friendly experience starts with a modern design and features an intuitive interface that allows you easy access to content when you need it. Add Canvas’ tutorials and videos to get you started, and their customer-focused, 24/7 support, and it is easy to see why this move will allow you to teach and learn more effectively – anywhere, anytime.
