Migrate a Blackboard Course to Moodle | UNSW Teaching Staff Gateway

Migrate a Blackboard Course to Moodle | UNSW Teaching Staff Gateway | Blackboard Tips, Tricks and Guides for Higher Education | Scoop.it
The Blackboard-to-Moodle migration tool is available, but we would ask you to consider the following:

This is something you will need to think through. Learning & Teaching provide educational design support and training to help you do precisely this.
