Abstract: The authors, veteran online instructors and course designers, work at a university that is in the process of changing its learning management system (LMS) from Blackboard to Canvas. Discover what the literature has to say about student, faculty, and administrator perspectives and preferences when switching to a new LMS, and learn about the authors’ experiences during the conversion process. The pros and cons of Blackboard and Canvas are discussed, and special attention is paid to the overall faculty experience when transitioning to a new LMS.
