Canvas Migration

BeachBoard to Canvas Migration 

CSULB is working with K16 Solutions to conduct the migration BeachBoard courses into Canvas. Faculty will not be required to migrate their course content manually. We highly recommend you do not attempt to do so as this will cause more work for you.  

No specific preparation is required prior to course migration. Once completed, instructors will be notified and will have ample time to make adjustments to course content before teaching in the new system. Faculty training and support resources will be provided by Academic Technology Services throughout the transition.

Timeline and Overview of Migration Plan:

  • Course content from the last 2 years will be copied from BeachBoard to Canvas including quizzes, discussions, and files.
  • Student submissions and grades will not be migrated.
  • All non-academic BeachBoard organization sites will be copied to Canvas.
  • A total of 5 years of courses will be archived and available upon request.
