Canvas Course Migration
Canvas Course Migration Progress Updates: All fall courses submitted in August have been migrated in Canvas and handed off to faculty.
It normally takes 4-8 weeks to get the course content migrated and reviewed. Please submit your request in advance.
To submit a request to have your courses migrated to Canvas, please go to this online form.
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.
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.
Current Canvas Migration Process
|All course migration requests should be submitted online. You will be asked to provide your contact information, NetID, program/department, the term you wish to teach in Canvas, and course ID or course link.|
|The course requests will be sent to the Canvas Migration Team, who uses automated technologies to copy course content to Canvas. Course migration is currently a batch process, and is not done by individual course.|
|After the course contents are migrated in Canvas, the COHLIT team goes into each course to remove errors introduced through the automated processes, known as "white-glove". An issue tracker is generated to track and document the issues that have been fixed, and any remaining items that need to be addressed by the course instructor.|
|A COHLIT instructional designer reviews the course to ensure a faithful version of the course content, and makes the necessary recommendations to best utilize the Canvas features.|
|During a migration meeting, the instructional designer and faculty review the course, discuss issues and improvements to the course.|
|Then the course is handed off to Faculty.|
|Faculty reviews and make necessary changes to finalize the course.|
