Division of Student Affairs
Open Forum Canvas & New Portal
Open forums focused on the Canvas Learning Management System (LMS) and the new MyBGSU portal from the student perspective are currently scheduled. These open forums will offer students information on the advantages of Canvas, explain why Canvas and Blackboard courses are currently both appearing in MyBGSU and show how to set up notifications and other best practices for configuring Canvas preferences. Additionally, the open forums will provide information on the new portal that is being piloted. This portal will be a replacement for the current MyBGSU and the open forum will provide a demonstration of this portal and its features while also allowing the opportunity ask questions about the portal.
All students are encouraged to attend. For anyone who missed the February 8, 2013 open forum, a second forum will be held on Thursday, February 21st at 2:30 p.m. The session will be held in 113 Olscamp and teleconferenced to 1011 CPC at Firelands. Additional information is available on the Canvas Project webpage and the MyBGSU Portal Project webpage.
