UMKC is transitioning from Blackboard learning management system (LMS) to Canvas. Both systems offer access to online coursework, discussion boards, learning tools and other features useful for online learning. During this transition, you may have classes on both systems until we transition fully to Canvas, and you can access them both on this page until then.

Students: If you are unsure which LMS (Canvas or Blackboard) to use for your course, check with your instructor.

Instructors: Learn more about the Canvas transition, including a timeline, training and more.
