I've been looking into options for moving Open edX courses over to the Canvas platform and was wondering:
It looks like there are no officially supported, publicly available migration scripts or strategies for moving courses from Open edX to Canvas. Is that correct?
The Canvas FAQ mention "Migration tools for commercial LMSs" as one of the features that are available for hosted offerings. Do these tools include a solution for migrating courses from Open edX to Canvas?
We are in the process of determining how we are going to bring over our Blackboard courses to Canvas. In our discussion someone asked how many semesters of Blackboard courses we should bring over to Canvas. What would be a typical number?
Also, do you keep all of the archives from your previous LMS? We have a good 14 years of courses archived and another 4 on our production server. That represents a lot of gigs of courses! What is the best practice for saving archived courses? If it makes a difference, we are located in Illinois.
We have to migrate course rooms from Fronter to Canvas. The Fronter "Archive" i.e. all structured data of every Fronter room should be migrated as a whole package into Canvas. Does anybody have experience with this kind of migration?
I could't tell if this was asked here already, but please forgive any redundancy. In Blackboard, we have a wide use of Organizations (Basically shells which are not associated with courses or enrollments in the SIS). These are used for study groups, video repositories, faculty groups, clubs, etc.
So the question is, what have you found to be the Canvas equivalent to these? Is it simply a matter of creating a course that's moderated by someone with a teacher role?
I have successfully migrated materials from Etudes with exception of the modules. It seems the entire modules file will not successfully migrate.When I upload it it in pieces, one section loads in but then the next then replaces the first load, so I can't seem to get them all to load in and stay in place. I went through to make sure all the links in the modules were working properly. They seemed to be fine.
Anyone have suggestions regarding how to get modules to load in properly? I would love to not have to recreate every unit in each module!
