Are You Ready for Canvas?

UNT will no longer offer courses in Blackboard Learn after the Fall 2018 semester. All Spring courses using a learning management system must be migrated to Canvas prior to the Spring 2019 semester start.

Canvas Migration — How can we help?

I want help from CLEAR to migrate my existing Blackboard courses.

Step One: Request Migration

  1. Complete the CLEAR Migration Form
    • Once submitted, CLEAR will:
      • Create a new Canvas development course.
      • Migrate your content from Blackboard into the development course.
      • Enroll you, the instructor, into the course.
      • Send you an e-mail when it is complete.

Step Two: Review

  1. Review your migrated Canvas development course. Consult your CLEAR Instructional Consultant if you have questions.
  2. Visit the Canvas Migration Checklist

Step Three: Offer Course in Canvas

Prior to the semester start, a Canvas Offering (blank course) will automatically be created for each UNT Course with two or more registered students, and you will be notified and enrolled in courses that you instruct.

  1. Students will be enrolled in the Canvas section.
  2. Import your content from your Canvas development course.
  3. Complete these important Canvas Start-of-Semester Tasks.

I want to build my Canvas course from scratch.

  1. Submit the Canvas Development Shell Form. This will be your development course shell and will act as a template that you can copy to your semester offerings.
  2. Develop your course in your Canvas development shell.
  3. Prior to the semester start, a Canvas Offering (blank course) will automatically be created for each UNT Course with two or more registered students, and you will be notified and enrolled in courses that you instruct.
