Canvas Student Resources
Welcome to Canvas!
UHD is transitioning to a new Learning Management System called Instructure Canvas. This system will replace Blackboard. As part of the transition, some of your classes may be offered in Canvas (instead of Blackboard) in Summer 2023 and Fall 2023 semesters. Starting in Spring 2024 all classes will be in Canvas.
If your class will be in Canvas in Summer 2023 or Fall 2023, your instructors will send you reminders and more information about where to find the class closer to the start of the semester.
We encourage you to start exploring Canvas now. You can log in to Canvas as a student even if your classes are not in Canvas. Here are some getting started suggestions:
