For a tool-to-tool comparison of what you can expect to be migrated, view the following resource: Converting from Bb to Canvas.

Content Migration from Bb to Canvas

During 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.

Migration Status per Semester

White Glove Service

During this transition period from Blackboard to Canvas, faculty have the option to request additional “clean up” service through Instructure/Canvas. Please note that the estimated time to complete the cleanup can last several weeks.
