Canvas to Replace Blackboard

The following message was sent on behalf of Dr. Alan Utter, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs:


I am pleased to announce that Canvas by Instructure has been selected as the sole learning management system (LMS) at Texas Woman’s University. The Canvas system is ready for use, but Blackboard will remain available through Summer 2019 in order to allow for a phased transition. PLEASE NOTE: All courses must be transitioned to Canvas prior to Fall 2019.
