Rowan University is transitioning its learning management system from Blackboard to Canvas to streamline course delivery for faculty and provide a seamless experience for students across all schools and colleges.

All existing Glassboro and Rowan Online courses are now transitioned to Canvas. During spring and summer 2021, we will complete the transition to Canvas by moving courses at RowanSOM, GSBS and CMSRU into the new system.

See below for frequently asked questions, Canvas training options, Canvas course information and a full project timeline.
