Blackboard to Canvas Transition

We’re changing how you access your courses

If you still need to access Blackboard for a doctoral seminar or to download old files, you can do so here until July 31st. Otherwise, click here to access our new learning management system, Canvas.

In order to enhance your ministry training experience, Midwestern Seminary and College will soon be transitioning our online course platform from Blackboard to Canvas. With a more modern user interface, greater mobile functionality, and streamlined assignment construction and grading, we believe Canvas will better serve the needs of both students and instructors.

2017 Roll out Plan

  • Spring Term A: Master’s Level Online Practicums.
  • Spring Term B: All Master’s Level Courses.
  • Summer Term A: All Undergraduate Online Courses
  • Fall Term: All Courses
