As you may know, Canvas has been selected as Montclair State University’s new learning management system (LMS) to replace the current Blackboard system effective Fall 2014. Students and instructors may find their Canvas courses preloaded for each semester.

You may access your courses at the MSU Canvas website, by visiting and logging in using your NetID and password.

In order to assist you with this LMS transition, Canvas training classes have been created and are being offered in multiple sections (started Fall13). In  addition, we now offer Canvas evening training classes and Private group training for individual departments/programs.
