Our team of Instructional Designers with COHLIT make migrating your online course content a breeze regardless of your current learning management system (Blackboard, Sakai, Pearson Learning Studio/eCollege, or Moodle). With our help, many faculty have already transitioned their courses to Canvas.  Here is an overview of our process:

Current Canvas Migration Process: Step 1- Migration request via online form.  Step 2 - Canvas Migration team uses automated technologies to copy course content to Canvas.  Step 3 - COHLIT white gloves the course to remove errors introduced through automated processes. Step 4 - A COHLIT instructional designer reviews the course to ensure a faithful version of the course content.  Step 5 - During a migration meeting, the instructional designer and faculty reviews the course to discuss issues and improvements to the course.  Step 6 - Course Hand-off to Faculty.  Step 7 - Faculty reviews the final course.

Once we receive your request, we will add your course(s) to our course migration list, which will be sent to Canvas for content migration.

Please Note:

  • The migration process will only migrate your course content, but will not affect your current course in whatever LMS you are currently teaching. You will have time to explore the Canvas features, finalize your migrated content, and teach in Canvas when you are ready.
  • Another option for you to move to Canvas is to contact the help desk ( to request a Canvas template course shell, and start building the Canvas course at your own pace.  Our team of instructional designers are available if you need any assistance with course design and development in Canvas.
