Canvas

Canvas is a cloud-hosted Learning Management System (LMS) that will replace Blackboard/myWPI at the end of June 2017.

About

WPI's online information and learning portal provides a customized portal interface to course content, projects, campus organizations and WPI's web of information. During academic year 2016-17, WPI will be transitioning from Blackboard to Canvas so students may find their course content in both systems. Effective July 1, 2017, 100% of courses that utilize the LMS will be in Canvas.
