Teaching and Learning Technologies is expanding its training calendar to assist the Case Western Reserve University community in advancing Canvas skills and retrieving necessary Blackboard content, and to provide consultation on any and all Canvas needs.

In addition to individual consultations, two completely new trainings—Blackboard Blitz and Canvas for Every Level workshop series—are being offered.


One-on-one Canvas Consultations will continue through the spring semester as a chance for faculty and staff to reserve time with a Teaching and Learning Technologies team member to address specific concerns.

These sessions can be scheduled online.

Blackboard Blitz

Blackboard will be decommissioned June 1, after which individuals will no longer be able to access content in the system. There are many tools that make copying content into Canvas easy, but these tools do not copy student data.

Blackboard Blitz training is designed to help faculty move student data out of Blackboard. The Canvas team will help individuals locate and download data from their Blackboard courses and save it on their computer for future use.

Training sessions are 30 minutes and will offered twice a week at various campus locations.

Upcoming Blackboard Blitz training drop-in dates are:

  • Today (Feb. 22) from 1:30 to 2 p.m. in Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing, Room 040
  • Monday, Feb. 26, from 11 to 11:30 a.m. in A.W. Smith Building, Room 01
  • Thursday, March 1, from 1 to 1:30 p.m. in Nord Hall, Room 212

No sign-up is required for drop-in sessions.
