Hello fellow Kean students,

My name is Sydney Freese, and I am a transfer student. I and many other transfer and first-year students have been using a software called Canvas. It is similar to BlackBoard, which is the software that Kean University uses for assigning homework, grading exams, and has many other “learning management” features. Even though both softwares are similar, BlackBaord is very confusing to use. My peers and I are already used to the layout of Canvas and agree that it is much easier to use. As someone who has used Canvas for two years now, I can say that it is much simpler and more organized for teachers/professors to assign homework, tests, and quizzes. Before and during the pandemic, most of my professors have even used Canvas to assign exams, which were graded (depending on what kind of test it was) on the spot. This feature creates less stress and anxiety for students since they do not have to wait to see their grades. Canvas has many other features that make looking up and doing assignments, getting help from professors and peers, looking up your grades, and many other things much easier and stress-free.

 If you are not used to Blackboard and find it just as confusing and hard to use as I and many others do, then please sign this petition.
