Changes coming to myWPI next year
At the end of the next academic year (AY 2016-17), WPI’s contract will expire with Blackboard and the current myWPI/Blackboard system will be retired June 30th, 2017. In preparation for this occurrence, a task force was organized to explore the many possible options, including a different version of Blackboard as well as other platforms. The task force evaluated survey data from students and faculty, and there was overwhelming consensus on utilizing a system called Canvas.
The Academic Technology Center has developed a number of resources to help faculty, students, and staff learn more about Canvas. Visit our Canvas website for more information. Additionally, many workshops and walk-in hours are scheduled throughout the Spring & Summer to orient you to the new system.
Please don't hesitate to reach out to the ATC if you have any questions or are interested in moving your existing Blackboard course site to Canvas- contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
