Content Migration from Bb to Canvas

Blackboard to CanvasDuring our transition to Canvas, the district has contracted with Instructure/Canvas to migrate course content from Blackboard to Canvas after each semester has ended. Faculty can view migrated content under Courses > All Courses (in Canvas) and then opt to copy the content into “live” Canvas sites. Note that migration does not mean that the content will be perfect – site “clean-up” will be necessary.
