The Virginia Community College System is welcoming Canvas as the new learning management system. Each of the twenty-three community colleges are actively transitioning from Blackboard to Canvas.

Effective Summer 2019, all courses will use Canvas as the primary learning management system.

This transition affords us the opportunity to reimagine learning and teaching. To facilitate this, faculty are encouraged to rebuild and start fresh with a blank Canvas (pun intended). The new learning management system boasts features that support accessibility, course and resource sharing, video storage and more.
