Beginning with the Fall 2018 semester, Main Campus and GU-Q course sites will be created automatically only in Canvas; Blackboard course sites will be provisioned by request only. By December 31, 2019, all faculty will need to complete the move to Canvas. Find out more about the Canvas transition.
GUFaculty360 is the new home for Georgetown faculty information, including expertise, publications, teaching and more. Login to update your information, and upload syllabus for your courses (under “Teaching” tab).
From 360, you can access MyAccess and Canvas as well.
Zoom enables you to conduct live online class presentations, conferences, and meetings. Faculty and staff can use Zoom to connect with each other, with students, and with colleagues from around world with audio, video and screen sharing.
