Blackboard vs. Canvas? You decide! (April 7 & 16)

Purdue’s contract with the Blackboard is set to expire in fall of 2017 and they are trying to decide whether to renew the contract or to switch to an alternative system.  One of the alternates is Canvas.  Feedback from pilot participants and individuals who attend the information sessions (see below) will help inform the recommendation of the Canvas Pilot Steering Committee to adopt Canvas, to explore other alternatives, or to renew the contract with Blackboard. The committee is expected to make a recommendation in July.

Make your voice heard!  ITaP is hosting Canvas information sessions geared toward students that will be led by student trainers. Those sessions will take place as follows:

Students also may enroll in a Canvas demo course (Purdue username and password required).
