            eLearning offers Hands-on Course Migration Lab: Blackboard to Canvas

            Canvas will replace Blackboard/WebCT as the university’s learning management system beginning track A of summer semester. eLearning is offering this hands-on lab, as well as workshops, to help instructors build courses in the Canvas learning management system.

            Participants, attending this lab, will use classroom computers and receive step-by-step guidance from eLearning staff to do the following:

            • Create a new, blank course in Canvas
            • Copy content from a Blackboard course into their Canvas course
            • Learn how to copy content from one Canvas course to another

            During the time remaining at the end of the lab,  eLearning’s staff will be available to help participants work with their courses.

            Manual Course Migration: Blackboard/WebCT to Canvas Step-by-step guide
