As the transition away from Oncourse to Canvas continues, I’d like to quickly highlight some helpful resources, both for those already teaching with Canvas as well as those of you who are preparing to do so:

  • Access a variety of online Canvas help resources: A collection of quick links to tutorials/other Canvas help can be found here:


  • Move your Oncourse course site to Canvas with the Migration Tool: the Canvas Migration tool helps you with copying course materials from Oncourse to Canvas.  Accessible directly within your Oncourse course site, the tool is capable of copying content from the Oncourse Assignments, Resources, Forums, Gradebook, Tests & Surveys, Modules, and Lessons tools.
