Curious About Canvas?

Have you heard the news? JHU is adopting Canvas as its new learning management system officially replacing Blackboard in Fall ’22 (Read more about the project on this JHU migration page) and IRC Training is here to help!

So, as we begin approaching the official launch, are you finding yourself curious about Canvas? Satisfy your curiosity starting April 1 when all AAP Faculty gain access to the Canvas platform, and we begin to offer a variety of different training opportunities.

To help you get the most out of the new platform, the IRC is providing a mix of virtual live and self-paced learning options specifically designed for AAP Faculty.

  • Growing with Canvas Faculty Orientation: Introductory, self-paced course designed to develop foundational skills necessary for using the Canvas Learning Management System. Faculty are automatically enrolled in this course hosted in Canvas.
