Washington University in St. Louis is moving from Blackboard to Canvas for our Learning Management System (LMS). Beginning June 2019, Blackboard will no longer be available for teaching. All courses will be taught in Canvas. Beginning December 31, 2019 faculty, students, and staff will no longer be able to log in to Blackboard. You should be aware of the following key dates and milestones and take action before December 31, 2019.
- Starting in the Summer 2019 semester, no current/new courses will be hosted in Blackboard.
- Beginning December 31, 2019 faculty, students, and staff will no longer be able to log in to Blackboard.
- If you anticipate needing access to past course materials, we strongly recommend you download and store them in Box, a network drive, or your own computer by December 31, 2019.

Spring 2020 Courses
Spring 2020 courses are loaded into Canvas. Instructors may now access their courses to start building content. Enrolled students will be able to access the courses once they are published by the instructor if it is less than 60 days prior to the start of the term.
