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
