What content types in Blackboard don't work in Canvas?

We will be moving from Blackboard 9.1 to Canvas over the next 18+ months. In the meantime, we have a professor who needs to create new course sites. He wants to know what Blackboard content types/tools to stay away from so that his course can be successfully migrated to Canvas. My thought is that he definitely create his course in something as close to modules as possible. Do those of you who have migrated courses from Bb to Canvas have any advice?

To refine my question, are there things created in Blackboard that won't migrate well to Canvas?

Hi there - I've started a checklist for problem areas to look out for in Blackboard before migrating to Canvas - you can see it (and contribute to it!) on the community here: https://community.canvaslms.com/message/159574-re-blackboard-to-canvas-migration-checklist?commentID... 

Thanks,

Steve

Avoid nested modules/folders. Anything more than 2 levels is easier to rebuild, than import. 

There are also no blogs/journal tools in Canvas.
