By the Fall of 2019, UTA will have made a switch from Blackboard to Canvas. These are both operating systems in which students and teachers can interact. It is mainly used for posting announcements, homework, and turning in assignments. Why the switch? Maria Martinez-Cosio is the project lead for this switch and she says that Blackboard was having some issues because UTA’s campus was growing way too quickly. She explains that Blackboard was not as user friendly or efficient as Canvas. We hope that with the switch, students have a more user friendly and efficient online environment.
