Blackboard @ UNCG
UNCG is moving to a new Learning Management System called Canvas
UNCG has selected Canvas by Instructure as its next Learning Management System (LMS), replacing Blackboard Learn (Bb). Over the next 2 years, UNCG will transition from Blackboard Learn to Canvas with a target of all classes being available in Canvas prior to Spring 2016. Please visit courses.uncg.edu for more information and specific details about the timeline.
Blackboard Learn allows instructors to go beyond the traditional classroom to deliver learning content and collaborative experiences to students. Students use their UNCG username and password to login to Blackboard Learn on any computer connected to the internet.
Blackboard Mobile Learn
Blackboard Mobile Learn gives you instant access to your courses, content, and organizations on a variety of devices, including Blackberries, Androids, Palms, iPhones and iPads.
Blackboard Collaborate enables you to hold classes, meetings, office hours, or one-on-one consulting sessions online and allows people to interact in a fun, engaging way. With this technology, departments on campus can save money on travel, because meetings and events can be held online. Events also can be recorded for later viewing.
