Hi all, How do I import content from insight into Canvas? I have quite a lot of content in Canvas for our Firefighter Academy how do I move it over to Canvas without recreating everything.
Hello Jim Skinner Welcome to the worldwide Canvas Community. And a rather belated welcome it is, too! The members of the Community are usually very quick to assist their fellow Canvas users, though it appears your question has people a bit stumped. I, personally, have never heard of Insight before and I have a feeling that's likely why your question has been out here for so long. I looked around the web a bit, and assuming that you are referring to the LMS that is referenced in this article I found, it is using (mostly) the Moodle platform. (I'm guessing that it no longer exists, because the link to the site itself now comes up as "Forbidden"!)
Assuming it is (or was) Moodle-based, I would suggest doing an export of a course site as a test from the Insight platform if you still can, and then importing it to Canvas following the instructions from the Guide here: How do I import content from Moodle into Canvas? Hopefully that will help.
If it does not, you may want to verify the type of export that Insight performs. If it IS a Moodle-based platform, we have several other users out in the Community (not me, I'm afraid!) who are former Moodle users that may be able to lend a hand with a bit more information.
Hope this helps a bit, Jim!
Hello Jim Skinner...
While I don't necessarily have an answer for you, I noticed that we have not heard from you since you first posted this question on April 27th and the received a reply from Ken Black on May 10th. Have you had an opportunity to review Ken's response to your question? If so, did it help to answer your question? Or, are you still looking for a way to import your content from Insight? If you believe that Ken has answered your question, please feel free to mark it as "Correct". However, if you are still looking for some help with this question, please post a message below so that members of the Canvas Community can continue to help you. For now, I am going to mark your question as "Assumed Answered" because we've not heard from you and because there hasn't been any new activity in this thread for quite a while. I hope that's okay with you.
Also, I wanted to let you know that I am going to share your question with the LMS Migration Strategies group here in the Community. If you are not yet following this group, you can use the link I've provided. Just click on the "Follow" button at the top right corner of that group page to start following the content in it.
Looking forward to hearing from you soon, Jim!
