Technology Resources

Teaching & Learning supports many learning technologies and has provided a collection of articles and resources to assist instructors. 

As you access these guides, please remember the most important rule to implementing new tools—that they serve a purpose or contribute to students’ reaching course learning objectives.

If you would like to discuss how to best incorporate a tool into your facilitation process, have a question about what tool might best serve a particular goal, or have a question that these resources do not address please contact Teaching & Learning.

Teaching with Canvas

In 2022, Johns Hopkins University transitioned from the Blackboard Learn Learning Management System (LMS) to Canvas. 

In May 2023, Blackboard access was sunset, so our team does not have any real way to recover materials that were not saved locally or migrated.

Canvas, like all LMSes, is not going to be a one-size-fits-all solution for learning, and sometimes other technologies need to be incorporated. It’s best to think of Canvas (like Bb before it) as a hub or jumping off point for learning, student resources and content.

Proctoring Tools

There are two options for proctoring tools on Canvas. Most courses use RPNow because it can record video while students take the exam. When students are taking exams in-person, Respondus would be the best option since it will limit access to other programs but not record video while students take the exam.
