We've figured out what Canvas is. I sometimes post in this thread about Canvas watching. https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=186227
Canvas is worth watching. I now have followed lightly more than 4,000 of the posts in the Canvas support forum. The grass is only sometimes greener.
Bit it is difficult to get a fix on things in the LMS world. Most people in the Canvas/D2L/Moodle/Sakai world are nice people and unwilling to slash and burn when they leave a product: it is usually with sadness, and the real truth of rationale behind a migraton is often not caught in public. I now know over 20 folk how have oozed and slid-den gently out of Moodle.org in the last little while. This is life. I've told my story elsewhere of flying to a foreign clime to run a Moodle workshop and to find the have installed Canvas. We worked for a day or so, and now they are a Canvas institution. (It was actually partly this that promoted me to ask Michael and Martin for a better indicative roadmap, since I was finding it impossible to work with some clients - here: https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=265939 So far my request has been met by silence, but it is early days yet)
IMO: the reference that Colin provides is hopelessly biased and only a little helpful (I quote: "Not long ago 14 (think that was the number) entities of higher ed. moved from Moodle to Canvas (sorry, don't have link) but here's something interesting: - http://educhalk.org/blog/university-of-texas-lms-comparison-canvas-first-moodle-a-distant-last-place/)
Migrating Bb > Canvas > Moodle
At the risk of repetition, I'll repeat Colin again "Better off looking at some of the newer tools, like Canvas. Set up a RoR directory and put Canvas onto the server, then work out how to convert from Canvas courses to Moodle, and Moodle courses to Canvas."
The original post https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=278529 didn't even hint at "We want to migrate courses" but if you do, migrating courses is traversed here: https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=260498 with the Canvas to Moodle option. I suspect there is NO nice Bb > Moodle option which is why Colin suggested do the Bb > Canvas > Moodle pathway.
I was surprised no-one mentioned https://docs.moodle.org/28/en/Blackboard_migration
And another comment: migrating questions can be a spearate challenge.
Re: Mary's edit to the posts in this thread:
I'd agree with Ken. Mary is not modding as in editing content, style, delivery, topics - just keeping the forums tidy. I think this is a legitimate role, re-fling posts in a different thread/forum. It's like herding cats.
Capitals on the net is regarded as shouting. (Just saying)
Again, just to acknowledge the posts of Ken and others here. Ken says: "Ok, we've both had enough I think ... know I have ... thanks your thoughts"
So I won't add more here. Except to say I have not given up on seeing tools used with a little more verve and panache. When our students and systems and managers and time permit.
My first serious post. From Mantra in Kosamui. http://www.mantrasamui.com/relaxing/infinity-pool/ Just warming up to Friday to deal with the giants and demons of plugins, server and staff not ready for a 2.8.1+ upgrade.
So I can't find how to make text smaller, but I can use subscript.
