Santiago Canyon College is committed to using technology to increase student success by removing barriers that limit access to learning. We are committed to using innovative technologies that promote learning, increase motivation, connect us as a community, and that allow time for motivating exercises that allow students to apply, analyze, evaluate, and create.
We have exciting news! Santiago Canyon College is switching from Blackboard to Canvas. Let us tell you a bit about this new Learning Management System.
Here are some quick highlights.
- Canvas is mobile! You'll enjoy a mobile or tablet App that works the way you want it to.
- Canvas is fast and is built on cloud computing. So tools like Google Docs, DropBox, and Twitter are all built right in to the system.
- Canvas is easy to use and is intuitive. Since all Canvas classes follow the same organization, you'll find what you need in less time.
- Canvas is functional. Now you and your teachers can communicate easily with the Canvas inbox and through the grade book, where you can have a conversation about your assignment.
We are really excited about the change and there are hundreds of features that we know you will love about our new Learning Management System. But converting to a new Learning Management System takes time. Your teacher may be using Blackboard or they may have switched over to Canvas. Please confirm with your teacher to see which system your class is using. Also, not all classes use a Learning Management System. If you do not see your class listed in either Canvas or Blackboard, please ask your teacher for details.
