Notice: USFSM has begun the transition to the Canvas Learning Management System. Blackboard will continue to be available through Fall 2013. Faculty members will have Summer and Fall 2013 to transition to Canvas.
This means that no material associated with or in Blackboard will be available after Dec 20th, 2013. This includes gradecenter, elluminate files, content collection, etc…). If you have any materials in your Blackboard courses, please contact Dale Drees or Stephanie Fuhr to learn how to export your materials.
Again, Blackboard will no longer be available to anybody in the USF system after Dec 20th, 2013.
To access Canvas, log into the single sign-on portal
USFSM E-Learning has resources available to help you transition to the new system. Dale Drees and Stephanie Fuhr are available for one-on-one appointments and weekly conduct training on Canvas and the tools that are used inside of Canvas.

The Kickoff event on November 16th was a huge success. If you missed it, be sure to watch the video of the event. Use Windows Media Player for best results.
As a USFSM faculty member you will use the Blackboard Course Management System to provide materials to your students. Using this software you can provide a one-stop destination for students to access all coursework, forever eliminating the "I didn't know I was supposed to do that" excuse.
Check out USF's Blackboard tutorial videos to get started.
For further assistance set up an Appointment or stop by the infocommons on the second floor rotunda for help.
