Canvas Information

Canvas Logo

Salt Lake Community College, in connection with the Utah System of Higher Education Consortium, is adopting Instructure Canvas as its new learning management system. Canvas will replace Blackboard Vista as the system for hosting online learning activities and course content. All courses currently hosted in Blackboard Vista will be moved to Instructure Canvas by July 1, 2012.

This web site is devoted to keeping you updated on the migration process and introducing you to Instructure Canvas. Here you will also find resources to help you learn and use Canvas.

Reason for Change
Blackboard Inc. will not support its Vista product after 2012. All schools using Blackboard Vista must move to a new system.
