Blackboard Retirement

As of July 1, 2022, Kent State completed its transition from Blackboard to Canvas. Access to previous classes in Blackboard is no longer available. 

Summer 2022, Fall 2022, and future courses will use Canvas


Canvas is an innovative platform that’s engaging and easy to use for online and in-person classes.

*Instructors should find a faculty edition of Canvas in a Flash on their Dashboard. If not, please email to request access.
