Quick Tip #11

Start Building Your Spring Courses in Canvas  

Now that spring course shells are available in Canvas, you can begin building your course. *Even though you are teaching in Canvas, there is also a version of your course in Blackboard.

Course content will not automatically migrate from Blackboard to Canvas. Instead, instructors are asked to review their Blackboard courses to see what they need for their new Canvas courses. 

Because of the differences between Canvas and Blackboard, some types of Blackboard content imports well, others require cleanup, and some may need to be recreated. Moving Content from Blackboard to Canvas explains your options and provides a step-by-step guide to migrate your content. 

Spring student enrollments will be added to Canvas on Tuesday, December 17. 

***We recommend using Google Chrome or Firefox as the browser for migrating content from Blackboard to Canvas. Many of these directions will not work using the Safari browser.***
