Canvas Migration Resources

UW-System Resources

UW-System has created a Canvas Migration Frequently Asked Questions page to help with the process and understanding how the Course Complexity Reports app works. There are general migration questions such as "Have the tool names changed in Canvas?" and "Are there any tools or features that don't import into Canvas?" as well as specific tool questions.
