Introducing Canvas, your new Learning Management System

3 Nov 2021

From 2022, USC will replace Blackboard with a new learning management system (LMS) called Canvas. Canvas has a great user-friendly, intuitive and accessible interface. It’s been piloted across multiple courses during Semester 2, 2021 with very positive student and staff feedback.

The new LMS supports the learning and teaching model to enhance face-to-face teaching and promote active and collaborative learning across all delivery modes. Canvas also introduces a range of features that will help staff to become more innovative in their teaching now and into the future.

Canvas also has 24/7 support channels, including online chat and phone as well as extensive Canvas community guides that take you through everything from accessing announcements, submitting assignments, getting the most out of your calendar and so much more. USC IT Services will continue to support students whose technical issues cannot be resolved through the 24/7 support channels.

We are really excited to roll this out to all students in 2022. Before you start studying in Canvas, we will send you instructions on how to access it and how to use it so keep an eye on your student email.
