Welcome to Canvas!

Welcome to the Swansea University Canvas Project Webpages, where you can learn more about the implementation of our new digital learning platform - Canvas.

Swansea University is already renowned for its learning, teaching and assessment excellence and the introduction of the Canvas platform is set to further transform, enhance and revolutionise the experience for students and staff.  

Canvas will be fully implemented by the start of the academic year 20/21, following the decommissioning of Blackboard on the 31st July 2020, and a project team has been established to support the university through this pivotal transformation.

There is a whole host of activity going on between now and our Canvas full go-live. This includes the early roll out of some academic modules by our Canvas Pioneers, the take up of the Canvas platform by our early adopters and a training programme which will be available to all staff from February 2020.

Whether you are a staff member or student these webpages are designed to aid and keep you updated on the transition to Canvas.
