Contact ETS to Migrate Your Course if:

  • You are teaching a distance education course

  • Your Connect course contains .html files

  • You are having trouble accessing your course. You should have access to your Fall 2018 Canvas course, but please contact us at ets.educ@ubc.ca if you are unable to access your new Canvas shell, or the Connect shell you are migrating content from.
    The migration process for non-credit shells is the same as for credit courses. If you require a non-credit shell, please fill out our form: Request a non-credit shell.

Having Trouble Migrating Your Course?

If you are have trouble migrating your course, please contact us at ets.educ@ubc.ca.

Some common issues are:

  • If you are using Safari, the zip folder may automatically unzip itself when you download it from Connect. To prevent this:

    1. Open Safari


    2. Click ‘Preferences’

    3. Under the General tab, un-check the option ‘Open safe files after downloading’

  • You import a zip folder with nothing in it. If you accidentally import a 0KB zip folder, Canvas will try importing it for a couple of hours before allowing another file to be imported. To prevent this, check the file size before you select it.
