Saint Rose Migrates to Canvas Digital Learning Environment

Following a year-long study and with the recommendation of faculty and staff, The College of Saint Rose is adopting modern, functional, and intuitive teaching tools – theĀ Canvas digital learning environment! This exciting change further positions Saint Rose for a bright future by supporting our Strategic Plan – particularly in the areas of Student Success and Innovation & Creativity.

Project Timeline

Project timeline. System planning in spring 2018, faculty training in summer 2018 and fall 2018, courses taught in Canvas in fall 2018 and spring 2018, Blackboard sundown in summer 2019.

Online Learning Services has completed both waves of faculty training, but we know that folks will need ongoing support and guidance. We encourage you to reach out to us so that we can discuss your needs and help determine best options for you and your courses!

In early June 2019, Blackboard will be taken offline and decommissioned. Online Learning Services will continue to hold archived records of Blackboard courses according to pre-existing protocol.

Please contact Online Learning Services with questions about this project or to discuss customizations/third-party tools that you use in Blackboard. Early discussion will allow for adequate planning.
