What are Blackboard Learn and Canvas?
Blackboard Learn and Canvas are both Learning Management Systems (LMS) used by Iowa State University. The courses you are enrolled in will likely use one of the these two online course content delivery systems. For most online students, this will be your primary way of participating in your courses. Through Blackboard or Canvas, you may submit your assignments, view your grades, take tests, possibly watch lecture videos, and communicate with your instructor either through email or through discussion boards.
