Rider University is pleased to announce the final phase of the Learning Management System Evaluation initiative. As a result, Rider will move from Blackboard to Canvas. Over the past year, a team of faculty and staff has worked together to create learning modules and training videos, all of which are designed to make the transition as smooth as possible. We look forward to the completion of this endeavor which will result in improved experiences for both students and teachers.
