Welcome to Canvas!
Canvas is a new learning management system that is being adopted by Penn over the next academic year. For the 2013-14 academic year, both Canvas and Blackboard will be in use at Penn. You will be able to view your courses and a link to the LMS purposed for the class (i.e. Bb or Canvas) in the Schedule Details portion of your Penn in Touch profile page.
If this is your first time using Canvas, the information below will help you get started.
How do I know if one of my courses is using Canvas?
Your instructor will tell you on the first day of class whether he or she plans to use Blackboard, Canvas or another system. You also can view links to each course site on your detailed schedule in Penn-In-Touch.
