Dear Illinois colleagues, 
 
We hope your summer is off to a great start. The Canvas planning teams have been hard at work preparing migration documentation, training, and support resources to help make your move to Canvas as smooth as possible. We are excited to update you on new resources and migration plans. 
 
  • What is the timeline? The following Compass courses are scheduled for bulk automatic import to Canvas.
    Canvas transition timeline
  • How do I know if my course is automatically migrating?
    • Instructors will receive an email notification with instructions for accessing and cleaning up migrated course content.
  • What does it mean to migrate?
    • A copy of your course content will be automatically moved to Canvas. This is a courtesy for you to use as you see fit whether that's using the imported content as your new course space, using the content as a file repository, or not using it at all.
    • Please note that you may continue to use Compass this fall. However, we encourage you to begin using Canvas as early as possible so that you'll have more time to adapt your teaching strategies to the new LMS and your students will have fewer platforms to juggle.
    • Think of automatic migration like hiring home movers: We're moving all of your boxes to a new house, and you will unpack and arrange the rooms.

Prepare Your Course for Canvas

  • Content imported into Canvas is not a 1:1 replication of the course. Cleanup will be necessary for both automatic and manual migrations. Preparing your course ahead of time is the best way to ensure a smooth move to Canvas. 
  • Check out our guided steps for both automatic or manual content imports to Canvas. These pages contain best practices for course optimization and organization.

Videos

  • Check out the Canvas MediaSpace channel to see recordings of recent training sessions, presentations, tutorials, and more. 

Compass Retirement

  • Reminder: Compass2g is retiring June 1, 2022
  • There will be an archive of all Compass content, including student data in case there are grade disputes. We are also archiving course content, but it will not be readily accessible for import into Canvas. This process is still in development.

Canvas Steering Committee
