- [00:00:02.487]So moving my course to Canvas was relatively simple
- [00:00:06.792]in that I didn't have a lot of infrastructure
- [00:00:08.808]built into Blackboard.
- [00:00:11.598]So I just set Blackboard aside and just started building
- [00:00:14.842]in the sandbox.
- [00:00:16.867]And building in the sandbox gives you a chance
- [00:00:18.676]to play with things.
- [00:00:19.851]Canvas has a very easy way, which you click over
- [00:00:21.677]and you see it from the student perspective,
- [00:00:23.732]so I saw what the students would see,
- [00:00:25.042]and I poked around and tried this,
- [00:00:26.610]watched a couple workshops and realized, ooh,
- [00:00:28.750]I could do things a little differently
- [00:00:30.256]than I had done in Blackboard.
- [00:00:31.570]So I didn't try to copy exactly what was in Blackboard.
- [00:00:34.835]I sort of explored the options,
- [00:00:36.381]and that has expanded new things.
- [00:00:38.824]I'm doing new stuff in Canvas, like quizzes,
- [00:00:41.117]that I wasn't necessarily doing before in Blackboard,
- [00:00:43.932]'cause they were just really nice elegant flow in Canvas.
- [00:00:47.535]So, I rebuilt my course kinda from the ground up
- [00:00:52.086]instead of exporting and importing it over,
- [00:00:54.495]and to me that was easy,
- [00:00:55.691]and I think it served my course the best.
