Pitt will fully transition to Canvas by the summer 2020 (2207) term. However, there is an opportunity for a limited number of faculty to teach a course with Canvas in the spring 2020 (2204) term. Because space is limited, submitting an application does not guarantee access to teach with Canvas.
Implementation resources from Canvas will be available to support early access participants throughout their course transition, as will the services of the Teaching Center’s LMS Consulting team and the CSSD Help Desk. It is important to note that while every effort will be made to migrate existing content from Blackboard to Canvas, teaching with Canvas in the spring will require faculty to invest time validating content and learning the new system. Training opportunities will be offered, as will direct 1-on-1 support.
If you are interested in teaching with Canvas in the spring, please click the button below to complete a brief application survey. Because space is limited, please make every effort to be realistic about the time you will be able to dedicate to make the transition by the start of the spring term. We will share updates related to Canvas at the Teaching Center’s Canvas page, as well as via our weekly newsletter which you can sign up for on our site.
Applications for spring 2020 early access will close Oct. 25 and those accepted will be notified by Nov. 1.
