Students enrolled in Spring 2017 online and hybrid courses are welcome to attend an on-campus orientation to Online Learning. These orientations, which are NOT course-specific, will be done separately for Blackboard and Canvas. The Blackboard orientation will be held Jan. 11 from 1-2:30 p.m. in Room 2410. The Canvas orientation will be held Jan. 12 from 5:30-7 p.m. in Room 2410. Learn more about LPC orientations.
In Spring 2017, Las Positas College will begin transitioning from Blackboard to a new course management system called Canvas. The transition will last until the end of the Spring 2018 semester. After that, all fully online courses, hybrid courses (a combination of online and on-campus instruction), and web-enhanced courses (fully on-campus but enhanced with online materials) will be delivered in Canvas.
In the meantime, both Blackboard and Canvas will be used.
To help students determine which courses will be delivered in which course management system, view a list of courses using Canvas in Spring 2017. Courses not on that list will use Blackboard.
Good luck in your course(s)!
