Getting Started - Converting

Blackboard course archive can be imported into a Canvas course. The success of the course import is dependent upon the number of folders within folders you have within your Blackboard content. If you have more than one level of folders within your Blackboard Course, it is recommended to recreate your Canvas course.

Once you have verified the course content has been converted / imported from Blackboard to Canvas, please rename your Blackboard course. The course will not be deleted, but will serve as an indicator the course has been converted to Canvas to Information Technology Services.

Steps to rename course:

  1. Navigate to Blackboard course
  2. Click Control Panel > Customization > Properties
  3. * Course Name field will be displayed > “Type DELETE” in front of the existing course name
