"course_header object missing from session"
I have the same error message when I try to restore a BB-course to Moodle. The only difference is that I´m using Moodle 1.8.4. (and Blackboard 7.3).
Hope anyone can help?
I found something interesting concerning to the problem above mentioned: http://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDL-13339?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:changehistory-tabpanel
If I understand correctly, this means that the problem should be solved in Moodle 1.8.5, 1.9 and 2.0. But David has the same problem with Moodle 1.9!
Any other ideas?
Our migration is now stopped cold!
(Maybe BB's outrageous prices are actually worth it...)
I haven´t found a solution for this problem.
Anyone who can help?
The whole business of Bb migration to Moodle is a pain that appears to be resolved only with a lot of manual manipulation of the content. *Sigh*
The Course Transfer Tool (http://welearn.sfsu.edu/ctt/index.html) is a bit out of date, but does do a better job of handling Bb text description migration compared to the built-in tool in Moodle. However, the built-in tool handles attachments better. Neither offers a truly satisfactory experience though, and both have size limitations, though, and only Moodle's tools can be somewhat tweaked on the backend.
For now, we are looking at combining the CTT tool along with raw import of Bb export archives and manual manipulation as the only viable solution. One year of pain.
Does anyone have a better solution?
I am also trying to convert Blackboard (6.1 Basic) to Moodle (1.9.1) and I keep getting the following error message. Some of the archives will import and others just refuse to.
Has anyone come up with a solution to this problem? Or even an explanation as to why some will work and others dont work at all?
I'm getting the same error just using Import without blackboard.
Love a solution
I've had the same problem, and I resolved it.
Instead of export the course from Blackboard you should archive the course, because all information concerning to the course is attached in the zip file (name of the course, code, etc).
I hope this help!
- Creating temporary structures
- Deleting old data
- Copying zip file
- Unzipping backup
- Checking for BlackBoard export
I am attempting to restore a course from Blackboard version 8. Using both an archived and exported Blackboard course produces the following error: "A required parameter (id) was missing". I get a Continue button but the file does not upload into my Moodle course.
Does the Restore function not support Blackboard version 8 courses? Any idea if Moodle 2 will?
Here's a good place to start seeing whether file size is your problem. http://docs.moodle.org/en/Administration_FAQ#How_do_the_limits_on_uploaded_files_work.3F
Thanks Ben! I will take a look at this.
