Welcome to Canvas

Canvas is the learning management system (LMS) for UIW. We fully transitioned as of summer term 2021 and Blackboard access has ended as of May 31, 2021.

As part of the UIW Course Consistency Initiative, all empty academic courses come populated with a few foundational items to promote consistent Canvas organization and navigation across the university. A familiar online environment minimizes student confusion and promotes efficient learning. Follow the resources below to get started with Canvas and learn how to make the most out of your Canvas course!
