Enhancing teaching and learning for students and faculty of Palomar College



What happened to Blackboard?

Palomar started using Blackboard’s course management system way back in March of 1998. But in December of 2016 the Palomar faculty senate made the decision to transition to using the Canvas learning management system instead. During the 2017 calendar year faculty had the option to use Blackboard or Canvas, but starting with the Spring 2018 term course sites were only provided in Canvas.
