Welcome to the Blackboard e-Education platform—designed to enable educational innovations everywhere by connecting people and technology.
Safe Assign is currently experiencing delays in processing reports because of the high volume of submissions as the semester comes to a close. Reports may take several hours to process. Please be patient and know that your submission will be processed. Faculty are aware of this issue as well.
In the fall of 2015 College of the Desert made the decision to begin using a new Learning Management System (LMS) in place of Blackboard. The decision was not made lightly and was made with the students' best interests in mind. The new LMS is called CANVAS and will be used exclusively for courses starting with the summer 2016 term.
At COD we recognize that making a change like this can be a challenge, and we want to ensure that students have the tools needed to be ready to use CANVAS. Students will need to be proactive, as well, to understand the basics of the system before they begin their first classes this summer or fall. All of the information you need to get started can be found at the Welcome to CANVAS! page, and you will also see links to this information from the Student Services website and MyCOD Portal when you log in.
We encourage you to explore CANVAS over the next few weeks and come to the Cravens Student Center Information Desk Wednesdays from 12:00-1:00 PM if you have questions about CANVAS or need help exploring this new learning management system.
