GWC’s Canvas Support Site

Welcome to Golden West College’s Canvas & Online Instruction support site for faculty!  We are almost finished with our transition from Blackboard Learn to Canvas.

Getting Started with Canvas

Did you know that a Canvas shell is created for every class offered at GWC? Canvas is the Learning Management System we use to deliver Online & Hybrid courses, but you can use it to supplement your on-campus classes.

Watch our Recorded Webinars to get started!

Timeline for Canvas Transition:

Semester Status
Spring 2017 As of May 31, 2017, the Blackboard server will no longer be available.

We are offering Blackboard Archiving Workshops to help you back up your content.

All course content must be archived/transferred prior to June 1, 2017.

Summer 2017
Fall 2017
All courses (Online, Hybrid, and On-Campus Supplemental) — without exception.

Transition is finished, and all courses will be taught on Canvas, from this point forward.
