Angel to Blackboard Transition -
SUNY Canton is transitioning from the ANGEL system to the Blackboard (Bb) system over the next year. This will allow the campus to share the same learning platform (Blackboard) as other SUNY schools resulting in better overall support.

The transition to Bb will occur in phases. ALL WINTER SESSION COURSES ARE TAUGHT IN  ANGEL. Most courses for spring 2015 will still be in ANGEL as well, yet a small number will be in Blackboard. Courses taught in Bb are identified on UCanWeb and the Printer Friendly Student Schedule.
