Georgetown is Moving to Canvas

Faculty on all Georgetown campuses can now use the Canvas course management system--a flexible, open, and extensible platform for course sites.  Why Canvas?

Georgetown's Main Campus and SFS-Q are moving from Blackboard to Canvas. The Law Center has already adopted Canvas for its course management system. The School of Medicine started the transition to Canvas in Fall 2017.

Beginning with the Fall 2018 semester, Main Campus and SFS-Q course sites will be created automatically only in Canvas; Blackboard course sites will be provisioned by request only. Fall 2019 is the last semester Blackboard will be available for courses. Find out more about the Canvas transition.
