Carleton’s Learning Management System (LMS) is changing in May 2021. Starting May 1, all courses will be offered on Brightspace by D2L. This week, we’re reviewing five things instructors need to know about migrating existing course content from cuLearn to the new LMS ahead of campus-wide access to Brightspace on Feb. 16. Here’s the fourth key thing:
4. Migrated content should be reviewed and may need clean up
TLS is here to support you no matter what your course plans are. If you decide to fully migrate and revise your content, we can help you with a consultation. Perhaps you’d like to import some older course elements, but not all. We’d be happy to answer any questions you have. You might want to start fresh and explore the interface from a new perspective. Brightspace has new integrations and functionality that weren’t available in cuLearn. Regardless of your course setup approach, we’re here to answer your questions.
If you are thinking of using your migrated content, we recommend that you review the “backup- moodle2-…” course in Brightspace which contains your cuLearn content.
You’ll notice the migrated content looks different and some course elements don’t migrate well. You’ll want to review the content to see what has come across, how it looks, and what is missing. Use the cuLearn (Moodle) to Brightspace Tool Crosswalk support page to guide your review.
Prior to copying the cuLearn content to your Brightspace course, clean up the content by removing redundancies and broken links. If you want assistance with reviewing your content, please complete the Course Consultation Request Form.
