Blackboard & Canvas

  • Introduction to Blackboard & Canvas

    In order to be a successful UNK student, you must know how to use Blackboard and/or Canvas.  Be aware, you will not be able access either until you have set up an active LoperMail account. Blackboard and Canvas allow you to:

    • Access the course syllabus
    • See all the materials needed for the course (books, art supplies, iPad etc)
    • Communicate with your professor and students in the class
    • Find and submit assignments
    • Take tests and quizzes
    • Participate in group and class discussions

    Note: Not all classes will use Blackboard or Canvas and those that do may not use all of their functions.

    Online Classes: Online courses are run either through Blackboard or Canvas.

    Blended Classes: A mix of online and traditional, blended classes will take place primarily online but will also have a handful of physical class meetings.

  • Getting Started

    You can find the link to both Blackboard and Canvas at the bottom of the UNK website home page (unk.edu). Remember, you will not be able to log in to your accounts until you have been assigned a UNK Lopermail email address.
