Dear Deans & Department Chairs,

Please forward the following information about the WebCT to Canvas migration to your faculty, adjuncts and graduate instructors.

As of April 1, 2012 the ability to activate course environments in WebCT/Blackboard Vista will be turned off. You can no longer create test courses or activate courses for future semesters. Spring 2012 courses currently running will not be affected.

On June 1, 2012 access to WebCT/Blackboard Vista will be shut off. All course files and data that you want should be downloaded or migrated the new Canvas course system. Instructions for downloading your WebCT gradebooks and files can be viewed here:

https://learn-uu.uen.org/courses/23633/wiki/archiving-content-from-blackboard-slash-webct

After June 1, 2012 a $20 data recovery fee will be charged to get any files or information from the WebCT backup archive at the Utah Education Network.

TACC-IMS consultants will be coming to all colleges and departments throughout April and May for drop-in labs to help faculty and instructors with final  course migrations from WebCT/Blackboard Vista. A schedule will be emailed to the department secretaries.

HOW TO MIGRATE A COURSE TO CANVAS:

1) Create a Canvas test course via CIS.utah.edu<http://CIS.utah.edu/>. This is where you will to migrate WebCT/Blackboard Vista course content.
