Blackboard, the Learning Management System (LMS) first
piloted at the Smith School in 2001 and used campus-wide
since 2006, will be replaced by Canvas in Spring 2013.
Because each workshop will be hands-on it will
be held in the 3515 computer lab and limited to 15
participants. If you have a TA, staff member or other
course builder helping with your course space, please share
this invitation with them and encourage them to come too.

other more specific topics will be provided in several modes

hours to help with your quick questions on a first-come
first-served basis. Please stop by the Help Desk to see who
is on duty. Time will be limited, so if you think you will
