What is the Content transfer process?

Any one Blackboard or Canvas site may include many different types of content. Some content types can be imported directly from Blackboard to Canvas via export/import with no functional change. Other content types require some management and modification, and still others are not recognised or handled in the same way in Canvas as they are in Blackboard, and need to be rebuilt in the new system.

To understand why this is, have a look at this quick explanation of the difference between Blackboard and Canvas navigation.

So how do I get my content into Canvas?

We suggest a 3-part process.

Please note, Canvas doesn’t have a bulk delete option, so any items in Canvas that you don’t require will have to be individually deleted. Following this process will minimise the amount of clean-up you need to do in Canvas.
