​​​​​Moving from one Learning Management System (LMS) (MyCourses) to another LMS (Canvas) always has certain limitations. As such only certain types of content come over from Moodle into Canvas. No student data, submissions, grades, forum postings (instructor postings included) migrate over. The Migration Map below provides a map of what items did and did not migrate from MyCourses to Canvas.

First, here are the assignments and activities which migrate over:

​MyCourses Content ​​Canvas Equivalent
​​Assignment​Assignments come over with dates, instructions, and points. Rubrics, grading guides, and any instructor added resources (such as a document) does not come over
​Audio Files​Page with a link to the file
​Chat​Chat resource available along with RingCentral integration
​ChoiceSurvey (ungraded quiz)
​Documents (.doc, .docx, .xls, .pdf, .txt, .ppt, etc.)​Comes over as a file in modules page
​Folder​Page (with links to the files that were in the folder)
​Forums​Discussions (no instructor or student postings transfer over)
​Gradebook​Gradebook / Assignments Page
​Groups​Groups can be setup in courses with more robust application.
​Image Files (.jpg, .png, etc.)​Page with images comes over as a new page. If the image was added to the MyCourses home page as a label, then the image comes over as a new page.
