Canvas and the VLE

From September 2017 all teaching materials and academic content can be found in Canvas our new Learning Management System.  This will replace the former “VLE” for all student facing online activity.

The “VLE” (Blackboard) will continue to be used for staff only content, such as staff admin communities.

Staff can access Canvas through any web browser at https://canvas.gsa.ac.uk

To book Canvas training please email lthelp@gsa.ac.uk.

Learning technology and Canvas updates can be found on the eLearning Blog and also on the Using Canvas for Staff course.

Students will be enrolled on academic courses from September 2017 and be able to access course content then.

Staff can still access the VLE (Blackboard) through any web browser at https://vle.gsa.ac.uk with a GSA username and password.  This will continue to be used for staff only content, such as staff admin communities, however all student facing content will be moved to Canvas.
