Canvas Communities

Blackboard Organizations to Canvas Communities

Starting in Fall 2013, Blackboard Communities (also known as organizations), will be migrated to Canvas. Each Community migration takes some time and careful planning.

The Technology Training and Integration (TTI) group is reaching out to Community leaders in waves, to coordinate the migration process.

In preparation for the impending migration, Community leaders are advised to attend the following workshops:

  1. Importing Blackboard Course content into Canvas
  2. Building Canvas Communities

The TTI group is also on hand to provide private one-on-one consultations and group training. For additional reference, please consult our guide for Importing Course Content.

If you would like to create a community in Canvas, please contact the University Help desk by phone (973-655-7971 opt 1) or by email (
