Introducing Canvas

Canvas is the newest digital course management system option at Georgetown!

Faculty on all Georgetown campuses can now use this new, flexible, open, and extensible platform for their course sites.

Blackboard is still available to use for courses, but we encourage faculty to explore the distinct features of Canvas such as an intuitive design, course modules, learning outcomes, course analytics, and continuous updates.  Find out why faculty are choosing Canvas.

We welcome your feedback on Canvas.  Please send your comments to or use our feedback form.
