LMS migration and project management methodologies

Community Member

Hello,

I am a new member of the community. I am interesting in migration strategies from a perspective of project management, in particular addressing these three key points:

  • Migrating courses
  • Training staff members (academics, administrators and students)>
  • Integrating Canvas with other management information systems.

Is there any recommended project management methodology and strategic documents that I can read to get a better insight into these three dimensions of the migration?

Thank you very much for your advice.

Hi m.garcia@hw.ac.uk Welcome to the Canvas Community.

A perfect group for you to join is https://community.canvaslms.com/groups/strategies there's all sorts of information there on the topics you mention.

Sing out if you need a hand and keep us posted with how you get on.

Fine, thanks. I am trying to create a course template in Canvas as a test.

Good on you. Testing and templates are excellent places to start.

Keep in touch and feel free to ask if you need a hand.

Since you ask 🙂 are there good examples of course templates/shared courses in Canvas that I can have a look?
I posted a question about this in the Q&A section.

Many thanks.
