Learning Management System (Canvas)

Important: CourseWeb (Blackboard Learn) Transition to Learning Management System (Canvas)

Canvas is the learning management system for all courses during the fall 2020 term. Log in to canvas.pitt.edu to view your courses, become more familiar with Canvas tools and features, and start creating your course content. Visit teaching.pitt.edu/canvas to learn more!

Canvas replaced CourseWeb (Blackboard Learn) as the University’s learning management system in the summer term 2020 (2207).

To support the transition to the new system, the Center for Teaching and Learning and Pitt Information Technology worked with a small group of teachers to create an Early Adopters Program for the fall term 2019 (2201). The Early Adopters taught some of their courses using the Learning Management System (Canvas) in fall term 2019 and spring term 2020. The rest of the University community transitions to Canvas in summer term 2020. 

The Teaching Center serves as an information hub–posting resources, tutorials, and news and updates on the Learning Management System website at teaching.pitt.edu.
