Transition your organizations from Blackboard to Canvas

All organizations housed in Blackboard need to move to Canvas. Organization administrators can make the switch now.

In order to create a site for your organization, individuals will need to know the following:

  • Preferred site name,
  • Organization name and
  • Any other leaders who will need access to the site.

Once you have gathered that information, email or call the Help Desk (216.368.HELP). A Canvas administrator will create a blank organization site for you. Then, you can transfer the organization content from Blackboard to Canvas, much like you would transfer course content.

Watch a YouTube video to see a demonstration of the process.
