SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., September 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — EdTech K16 Solutions is proud to announce a new partnership with Instructure, makers of the Canvas learning management system. K16’s Scaffolding Migration Service is a revolutionary, cloud-native, fully integrated solution for migrating content between learning management systems.
Traditionally, migrating course content from one LMS to another has been problematic, but K16 Solutions and Instructure are teaming up to offer new Canvas users the ability to move content from their legacy LMS platforms exponentially. faster and more accurately than ever. Replacing time-consuming manual processes, Scaffold Migration delivers industry-important features, increased efficiency, and dramatically reduced migration times, while seamlessly integrating with LMS platforms such as Canvas, Blackboard, Moodle, Brightspace and Sakai.

CEO and co-founder of K16 Solutions Thomas Waite, PhD also expressed his joy in partnering with an industry leader like Instructure, saying, “We’ve held the positions of administrators and faculty, and we’ve experienced the frustrations of migration firsthand. This partnership will benefit institutions migrating to Canvas. and as such will benefit the students they serve, which is our ultimate goal. Both companies envision a future where the old hurdles that have historically accompanied LMS migration are a challenge of the past.
