Reminder: UBC is decommissioning Connect on August 31. Here’s what you need to know.

Canvas was chosen as the replacement for Connect on June 8, 2017, after extensive consultations led by student and faculty teams. Learn more about why we’re excited about Canvas.


Please be aware that UBC is retiring the learning management system Connect on August 31, 2018. After August, Connect will no longer be available for teaching courses.

If you’ve yet to make the transition to Canvas — our new online learning platform —  or if you still have older course content stored on Connect, please ensure you have a plan in place for transitioning your courses to Canvas.

Here’s what you need to do before the end of August 2018

Transition your courses from Connect to Canvas

If you’re still using Connect and have questions about transitioning to Canvas, please get in touch with your faculty’s Instructional Support Unit (UBC Vancouver) or the Centre for Teaching and Learning (UBC Okanagan) as soon as possible to put together a plan for moving to Canvas. The Learning Technology Hub is also available to help.

Canvas training and support is available for UBC instructors, TAs, and staff. Please see the full list of Canvas resources, including drop-in help, at UBC Vancouver and UBC Okanagan.

Save any Connect course content that you want to keep (and have not yet transitioned to Canvas)

We highly recommend downloading any Connect courses you would like to retain as soon as possible. For more information about downloading your Connect course content, check out our step-by-step guides to exporting course content from Connect and importing course content into Canvas.

Who can I contact if I have questions?

If you have any questions about Canvas or about transitioning from Connect, we recommend making your faculty’s Instructional Support Unit (UBC Vancouver) or the Centre for Teaching and Learning (UBC Okanagan) your first point of contact. You’re also very welcome to call, email or drop by the Learning Technology Hub for assistance with Canvas.
