Content Migration from Bb to Canvas

During our transition to Canvas, the district has contracted with Instructure/Canvas to migrate course content from Blackboard archives to Canvas. Below is a table of the migration status per semester. Please note that the migration occurs several weeks after the 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. For more details, please see below.
