Welcome to the Spring 2023 Semester
See eStudent Resources for additional student resources.
PGCC recently transitioned from the Blackboard Learning Management System (LMS) to Canvas. This change comes with many benefits to our students.
Canvas is the LMS of choice used by the University of Maryland College Park, Anne Arundel Community College, Morgan State University, Howard Community College, Prince George's County Public Schools, and many other academic institutions across the nation.
For more information on the transition from Blackboard to Canvas, please see "Understanding the Migration: From B to C".

Zoom in Canvas
Zoom will be used as the virtual classroom in Canvas. You will see a course menu link in your course that says Virtual Classroom. Click on Virtual Classroom and you will see a Recording Release and a link to Zoom meetings.
Then, click on the Zoom meeting link and you will see all your instructor-scheduled course meetings. At the scheduled meeting time, click the Join button to attend the meeting. Any meetings that your instructor has recorded will be available in the Panopto Video course link.
For more information, please see the Student Orientation to Zoom in Canvas.
Additional Student Resources:
For best performance, Canvas should be used on the current or previous major releases of Chrome, Firefox, Edge, or Safari.
