Canvas was selected in 2018 to become the single Rutgers University learning management system (LMS), replacing—over time—Sakai, Moodle, and Blackboard. In Camden, IDT is leading the migration effort, so give us a call if you have questions! As of late summer 2019, the School of Nursing is 100% in Canvas, Camden Law has started its first semester with all courses in Canvas (note Newark Law is still in Blackboard), Business is well on its way, and Arts & Sciences is just starting a deliberate migration effort, to be completed by spring 2022.

IDT is happy to support Rutgers–Camden faculty in any teaching endeavors in Canvas.  For help after hours, please contact the NB Canvas Help Desk at (877) 361-1134 or  Below are some commonly asked questions with guides from both IDT and the Canvas Community.
