Blackboard to Canvas? Why?

This may be the obvious question that no one asks, but I'll ask it anyway:

Why switch from Blackboard to Canvas?


A couple of possible directions for your answers:


  • Often faculty demo the Canvas product and are immediately in love, want to switch tomorrow. However, demos are demos and everything is designed to run perfectly while the Canvas rep guides you through the most beautiful and enticing parts of the product. What is your actual experience after switching? What do you wish you could have known before you switched?


  • If you can give me interesting faculty or student feedback, your personal experience as an admin or an instructional designer, or anything else you can think of, that would be helpful!


Thanks all, in advance!
