The VCCS Blackboard contract will end in June 2019. Therefore, the system developed a Request For Proposals to evaluate different learning management systems over the past year. After careful consideration, the VCCS has offered an Intent to Award this contract to Instructure (Canvas).

Canvas is a well-established learning management system that has been successfully adopted by many colleges all over the country. We’re confident in its ability to serve our students and faculty well moving forward.

LFCC is focused on building Canvas awareness college-wide and has offered over 30 hours of faculty training during the Fall 2018 semester. All VCCS colleges are now part of a Canvas pilot for the Spring 2019 semester and LFCC has over 50 courses being taught on Canvas for the Spring. All Summer 2019 courses will be 100% on Canvas and Blackboard will be discontinued.
