Resources for Students

As you know, UTHealth is implementing Canvas as a replacement for Blackboard for all online courses.  You are invited to explore the resources below in preparation for your migration to Canvas.  

  • Canvas Student Orientation
    This self-paced course is designed to familiarize students with the basic need-to-know tools and features of Canvas in an effort to prepare them for taking courses in Canvas.   

    This course is broken into five modules (total of 14 individual very short lessons). Each module should take about 15-20 minutes to read, review and complete. It is recommended that participants complete the modules in sequential order; however, it is not required.

  • Canvas Videos
    The Canvas Video Guide contains a series of short videos designed to help students learn how to use Canvas. Videos can be viewed in any order. Total viewing time for all videos is ~ 55 minutes
