Canvas replaces 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. 

Here is a general timeline outlining the current proposed timing for the transition from CourseWeb to the Learning Management System.
