Organizations in Canvas
In Blackboard, users had to submit a ticket to the IT Support Center in order to have an organization created; this is no longer the case.
In addition, as with courses, it is the leader’s responsibility to retrieve all content from their Blackboard organization, including Promotion and Tenure.
Here are some steps to take for getting this accomplished:
- Create an Organization in Canvas
Note: Courses and organizations have a maximum storage limit of 2 GB. If your organization is larger than this, be sure to utilize Kaltura to store videos and Google Drive to store large or additional files. These files can later be embed or linked to the organization.
- Export the organization content and import it to the organization.
- Download your Blackboard organization files and then upload your files into your new Canvas organization.
- Download any Blackboard Collaborate videos you may have recorded.
The deadline to retrieve organization content is March 31, 2021, not to be confused the the deadline to retrieve course content on May 31, 2021
