Sac State is transitioning to a new learning management system (LMS) called Canvas

Canvas Logo

After a campus-wide evaluation process over seven months, Sac State chose Canvas as the replacement for our Blackboard (SacCT) LMS. Yes, this means some work will be necessary to make the transition process happen but it will be well worth the effort. Soon, instructors and students will experience the benefit of Canvas' simplicity. This means less time wasted on technical issues and more time invested in the teaching and learning process. 

The transition process will entail some work for instructors transitioning existing courses but your Canvas transition team at the Academic Technology Center is here to support you every step of the way.

So, take a tour of this Canvas Transition Center to get all your major questions answered and gear up to explore your new teaching and learning platform.
