Canvas is UBC’s new mobile-friendly online learning platform, which will be gradually replacing Connect (Blackboard Learn) throughout the 2017/18 academic year. This September, some UBC faculties have begun hosting courses in the new system. If you have a course in Canvas, you can log in with your CWL at canvas.ubc.ca.
Each faculty has developed its own timeline for the transition from Connect to Canvas. This means that at some point during the 2017/18 academic year, you may have courses in both systems. By September 2018, all courses that are currently offered in Connect will have moved to Canvas.
