Beginning of the Summer 2019 term, May 6, 2019, Goldfarb School of Nursing at Barnes-Jewish College will no longer be using Blackboard as our learning management system (LMS). The College will be using a new LMS, Canvas.
What does this mean for you?
For Students: Your Summer 2019 courses will be available to you on Canvas starting two weeks prior to the start of the term. More information will be coming as the summer term approaches!
Take time to watch the following video, for a Canvas Student Overview.
For Faculty: Canvas User Lunch 'n' Learns and Workshops are available to faculty. Please visit the Faculty and Staff page for an updated schedule.
Canvas can be accessed in two ways: 1) through the Canvas link in GUS Connect or 2) through a direct link to Canvas. Use your GUS Connect username and password to log in to Canvas. Canvas works best in Google Chrome and Safari.
Note: New students will not have a GUS Connect username and password until two weeks prior to the start of their first term. If you need help logging in, please contact BJC-IS at 314.362.4700 or IS_CSC@bjc.org.
