For over 18 years, Blackboard has served as JSU's learning management system (LMS). On August 16, 2019 at 4:30 pm, Blackboard will no longer be available. After this date, our new LMS will be Canvas by Instructure. Until August 16 @ 4:30 pm continue to login to Blackboard at https://jsu.blackboard.com/

End-of-Blackboard Tips:

  • Download and save any files and other material from the content collection or other means in which files have been stored.
  • Bb Ultra (Collaborate) and VoiceThread will also be unavailable after August 16, 2019. Download related files as desired.
  • Bookmark the link to Canvas: https://jsu.instructure.com


On August 16, 2019 at 4:30 pm, Canvas will become JSU's official and only LMS. All courses which use an LMS will then use Canvas. Current faculty, staff, and students may access Canvas at any time. Students may not see courses listed but may give Canvas a test drive by entering the Canvas for Students Demo course (see below). Fall 2019 courses will open in Canvas by the first day of fall classes (August 21, 2019).
