In the fall of 2016, UMSL underwent an open bid process for its next Learning Management System (LMS) vendor. After the bid process, two vendors met the criteria set forth and were brought to campus for demonstrations. After much feedback was gathered, the decision was made to select Instructure Canvas as UMSL's LMS moving forward. Read more about the process or read the summary of the decision.

UMSL will maintain a one-year contract with Blackboard for the 2017 calendar year while faculty migrate courses over to the new Canvas LMS. UMSL will host a number of workshops, departmental offerings, and consultations to help ease the task of learning how to use Canvas and set up your existing course in the new platform.
