Canvas is Coming to UNLV
WebCampus transitions to Canvas in 2018
UNLV will transition the WebCampus learning management system from the current system, Blackboard, to Canvas in 2018. The School of Nursing and the Greenspun College of Urban Affairs have been selected as the pilot groups of early adopters to help OIT staff refine the transition process. Faculty teaching in these pilot units will engage in training and move their courses to Canvas a semester earlier than the rest of the university. Pilot groups will offer recommendations to improve the migration process for faculty and students in other colleges. All courses will be taught on the new platform in Fall of 2018.
No action is required at this time. More information is available on this website about the decision to switch to Canvas, and what to expect. This site will be updated as additional information becomes available. Faculty making major revisions to their WebCampus courses during this transition time are encouraged to contact WebCampus support to discuss how those effort will translate to the new WebCampus platform.
