Migration tips from D2L/Brightspace Saas to Canvas?

Jump to solution

Hi all, 

My college is in the midst of a migration to Canvas from D2L SaaS. We are currently trying to determine the best strategy for course migration and archiving.  Can anyone shed some light around their institution's strategy regarding migration and archiving?  Did anyone use the Bulk Course Export (BCE) tool offered by D2L to move their courses over?  If so, were there any major challenges/successes?

Thanks!

Shah

Hi Robbie, 

No apology necessary!  I was hoping for a reply, but in the end we managed to figure things out. 

The BCE tool ended up being quite useful for us, and allowed us to export 6 years worth of content with minimal issues/effort.  As part of our governance strategy, I managed to formulate a sufficient strategy in line with both college wide and legal regulations so concerns about content would be mitigated.  

Thanks for reaching out!

All the best,

Shah

 @shah_yazdanian ,

First, I want to apologize for your question sitting in the community for so long without a response.

 

Second, it looks like you have stumped the Canvas Community.  Were you able to find an answer to your question? I am going to go ahead and mark this question as answered because there hasn't been any more activity in a while so I assume that you have the information that you need. If you still have a question about this or if you have information that you would like to share with the community, by all means, please do come back and leave a comment.
