I was trying to import a course from moodle in Canvas and faced few issues. I was wondering what all should be taken care of while importing courses from moodle to canvas? What are the major issues? What all needs to be fixed in canvas?
Hello @symbiosis_edu20 and welcome to the Canvas Community! There are many folks in the Community who have moved from a Moodle-based LMS to Canvas and may be interested in sharing their experiences. Since there probably isn't a single "correct" answer, I am going to change this from a question to a discussion. I hope you do not mind. We came from a MoodleRooms product to Canvas and with the exception of some discussion settings, migrating content went smoothly. What issues did you run in to specifically?
Here is a website I found which has some good information on things to consider when moving a course from Moodle to Canvas,Canvas Transition: Migrate a Course from Moodle to Canvas | IT@UMN. Is any of this helpful in what you are facing?
Again, welcome to the Community and best wishes!
Thank you Eric for re-framing the question. The link provided to the guide was really helpful. We actually googled a lot to find something like this, but didn't come across it.
Thanks for sharing the step by step process starting from creating a backup and then importing. It is really helpful. I actually received the backed up file of a moodle course. This document shows the different options that can be chosen while creating the backup.
Thank you once again.
