April 3rd, 2013
After a successful pilot, CU Online is happy to announce that we will be moving ahead with the migration to Canvas. Blackboard and eCollege will be retired in the 2013-2014 academic year and all courses will be offered using Canvas. The information below outlines a plan for the migration. We look forward to working with you in the coming months!
Summer 2013 Courses
If you would like to use Canvas during the upcoming summer term, you must complete the opt-in form. Since summer is an opt-in period, you must let us know that you wish to teach your course using Canvas!
Faculty should expect an approximate two week turn around between requesting Canvas shells and getting access. Also, eCollege content migration should begin in the coming weeks. Our goal is to make sure you have plenty of time to get acquainted with the new system before your classes begin!
Fall 2013 Courses
During the fall semester, we expect everyone to be using Canvas. Courses will be flagged in ISIS for Canvas and course shells will automatically be created for you. However, if you wish for CU Online to migrate your content from either Blackboard or eCollege, you must complete the migration form. Unless you let us know using the form above, no content will be migrated to Canvas. Of course, you may elect to move your content to the new system yourself.CU Online can assist you in the process for moving content from Blackboard to Canvas, or provide recommendations for cutting and pasting content between eCollege and Canvas.
Spring 2014 and Beyond
We are working with eCollege and Blackboard to archive all course content from previous semesters. We will be providing additional communications related to archiving content at a later date.
Canvas Training Events
Each month Canvas hosts a number of free webinars. These events are not hosted by CU Online and you must register on the Canvas training website
