All Blackboard courses can be moved over from Blackboard to Canvas by requesting a Canvas course with a copy from a Blackboard course. Most content will import during this process, however, course navigation and some features (blogs, wikis, journals, and some links) may need to be recreated. There are several options that instructors can consider when deciding whether to start from scratch or import content from Blackboard:
- Import a Blackboard course, then edit the content to make usable in Canvas.
- Import a Blackboard course to a development site. Then in the official course site, move in content as needed using the Canvas "import" feature, https://guides.instructure.com/m/4152/l/57077-how-do-i-import-content-from-another-canvas-course.
- Create a new, blank Canvas site and start fresh.
