Where do students go if their course has an online presence?

If your course has an online presence it may be found in Blackboard or Canvas, Iowa State’s Learning Management Systems (LMS).

To log into an LMS: open a web browser, navigate to the Iowa State University website, locate the “Sign Ons” link found on the upper right corner (above the search box), and then select “Canvas” or “Blackboard” from the menu.

If you think your course is supposed to be in one of these systems, and you don’t see it after you logged into one, contact your instructor.

The good news is that this upcoming spring Iowa State will only be using Canvas as the campus-wide LMS.

To learn more about Canvas, visit the MyCanvas Student online course or for help with Blackboard, visit the For Students: Blackboard Guide website.
