Using the WebCT Migration Tool in Canvas


Before proceeding with this process, please read the Pros and Cons of WebCT Import Options. If you are not sure whether the WebCT Migration Tool is the right option for you, please contact ITG.

If you are confident that this is the best option for you, follow these steps to import your WebCT content to Canvas:

  1. If applicable, remove any files that you are not using from WebCT. For tips and instructions, read Cleaning Up WebCT’s File Manager. You may also want to create a back-up of your WebCT files.
  2. Note the name and course number of the WebCT course you will be importing.
  3. Create a template course in Canvas if you have not done so already.
  4. Navigate to your template course in Canvas.
  5. Follow the step-by-step instructions in the Canvas Instructor Guide:  How do I import content from my old Blackboard course into Canvas?
