LMS Migration Strategies - Page 2

Tried importing various Bb 9 archive files into Canvas over the past few months, and all but one of them has failed to import.  The importation times out, regardless of my browser or connection.  The one exception produced an import that was virtually useless, as much of my content was missing, and other bits were located in very odd places.  Have any of you experienced this?  We're considering switching to Canvas.

It's been a few years since we needed to deal with this, but at the time I felt the need to improve on the built-in Blackboard import into Canvas. I tried to replicate the structure of the original course in Blackboard in a new course in Canvas as closely as possible.


My code is posted to GitHub, but has not been updated to handle Blackboard 9 exports (if they're different) or a few lingering issues.


Feel free to have at it, improve it… or just use the built-in importer! If you want to use my code and want a hand getting it cranked up and running, feel free to reach out to me.
