Welcoming Canvas to SF State
How long will iLearn remain available?
A new version of iLearn was created every academic year. Each of these instances of iLearn stay active for two academic years and then are retired. iLearn will maintain this lifecycle during the transition to Canvas.
|Academic Year||Retirement Date|
|Fall 2019 - Summer 2020||October 2022|
|Fall 2020 - Summer 2021||October 2023|
|Fall 2021 - Summer 2022||October 2024|
|Fall 2022 - Summer 2023||October 2025|
Collaborative sites are currently being migrated. Collaborative sites on iLearn will completely go away in October 2025.

Prefer a one-on-one meeting?
Schedule a virtual appointment via Zoom with AT staff on our bookings page.
Appointments are available Tuesday through Friday, 9am to 4pm, pending staff availability (will be paused for first week of semester; for help with Canvas during the first week of the semester, contact the AT Services phone line below, or use the built-in help within Canvas to get connected directly to a Canvas technician).
As a reminder, you can always call the main help line at 415-405-5555 without an appointment for quick questions.
