By now, you know that ODU has moved to Canvas as its enterprise learning management system. As you move from Blackboard (Bb) to Canvas, count on the Center for Learning and Teaching’s pedagogical and instructional technology specialists to support you. While this transition might require you to learn new tools and unlearn old ones, it offers an opportunity for you to rethink and reorganize your course content. This is also an opportunity to step back and reflect on how the new features offered by Canvas can contribute to the accomplishment of your course learning objectives.    

To guide you through the transition, this site allows you to:
