With the adoption of Canvas as the learning management system at Case Western Reserve University, the previous system, Blackboard Learn, will be decommissioned Friday, June 1. After this date, individuals no longer will be able to access content in that system.
Teaching and Learning Technologies will offer a variety of services to help faculty and students make sure their work is removed from Blackboard.
Students should retrieve content submitted through Blackboard that they might need to use for portfolios, applications and future classes before Friday, June 1.
Faculty and students can get help locating and saving their Blackboard work by contacting the University Technology ([U]Tech) Service Desk at email@example.com, 216.368.4357 or help.case.edu; referring to the [U]Tech website; or attending Blackboard Blitz training drop-in sessions.
Blackboard Blitz training is designed to help students and faculty move student data out of Blackboard. Teaching and Learning Technologies will help individuals locate and download data from their Blackboard courses and save it on their computer for future use. Drop-in training sessions are 30 minutes and will be offered twice a week at various campus locations.
Upcoming sessions will be held:
- Tuesday, April 17, from 4 to 4:30 p.m. at DeGrace Hall, Room 312
- Friday, April 20, from 9 to 9:30 a.m. at Glennan Hall, Room 716
- Monday, April 23, from 2 to 2:30 p.m. at Nord Hall, Room 206
- Thursday, April 26, from 11 to 11:30 a.m. at Mather House, Room 02
Registration is not required for drop-in sessions.
In addition to Blackboard Blitz, Teaching and Learning Technologies maintains a comprehensive training calendar to assist faculty in advancing Canvas skills, retrieving necessary Blackboard content and addressing any and all Canvas needs.
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 through a Google Form.
