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.
Reason for Change
Blackboard Inc. will not support its Vista product after 2012. All schools using Blackboard Vista must move to a new system.
In a lengthy evaluation process at SLCC and across the state, Canvas received the highest approval from faculty and students and met the state's evaluation criteria better than any of the other available options.
If you would like access to a Canvas development site, please call our Canvas Administrator at (801) 957-3963.
NOTE: Please do not request a free instructor account with Instructure.com, as any work you do there will not be transferred to UEN's hosted version of Canvas once it becomes available.
Anticipated Migration Timeline
Canvas Support Resources
As a partner in the Utah Consortium, we have access to support resources from the State Consortium, as well as Instructure. Additional SLCC training and documentation resources are currently under development.
