Importing course materials from Blackboard into Canvas can be complicated. In order to simplify the process, Learning Technologies has provided step-by-step instructions on importing Blackboard content into Canvas and information as what to expect when course content is imported:
A list of what content will transfer and an idea of how the course will look when imported.
Step-by-step instructions on exporting a Blackboard course and importing it into Canvas using the Course Import Tool.
Where Blackboard course content is nested and controlled through the course menu, Canvas content is presented in a "feed" style and controlled more fluidly. Because of these differences, there will be complications when importing a Blackboard course (that has been exported to a .zip file) into a blank Canvas course.
It's important to remember that Blackboard and Canvas are two entirely different learning management systems (LMS). The point of this guide is to offer the best methods and workarounds possible.
