SCOTTSDALE, Arizona., August 10, 2021 / PRNewswire / – K16 solutions, the industry leader in course migration, course design and course archiving EdTech for the Learning Management System (LMS), has announced that it is expanding its partnership with Instruct, the creators of Canvas.
This partnership now extends beyond the simple migration of LMS courses to provide institutions with a state-of-the-art solution to store, view and retrieve student data and submissions on a platform fully integrated with their Canvas instance.
Scaffolding archiving will allow institutions using Canvas to archive student data and course content on the Scaffold platform at a fraction of the cost compared to archiving on a legacy LMS, allowing these institutions to reinvest their savings in other critical areas. In addition, these institutions will maintain easy-to-access archived content that will allow administrators and faculty to transfer individual archived course content to Canvas as needed and retrieve student data and submissions.
“We are delighted to offer our customers an innovative archiving solution that will not only allow them to maintain easy access to student data and course content, but will also help them save an exceptional amount of money in the process, ”said Tara Gunther, Vice President of Partnerships at Instructure. “Our partnership with K16 Solutions continues to deepen and in doing so provides benefits to our customers.”
Noted Abram (Abe) Hedtke, director of educational technology at Sainte-Marie University of Minnesota, about using this archiving solution: “Content can easily move from Scaffold Archiving to Canvas. We don’t need to download a cartridge and clean it up later. Instead, we just find the course, click a button and go from Scaffold to Canvas. Our archive is now its own version of an LMS where we can easily move content to and from Canvas and Scaffold.
“Since starting this partnership with Instructure a little over a year ago, our sophisticated automated migration solution has saved many institutions considerable time and eliminated the frustration of having to manually migrate their legacy LMS to Canvas, ”said Dr. Thomas waite, President and CEO of K16 Solutions. “Expanding our partnership now to include breakthrough archiving technology is even more rewarding, as we know institutions will be able to save thousands of dollars while still having ready-to-access content that can be transferred to Canvas every time. as needed. “
K16 Solutions has migrated or archived over 500,000 courses and can migrate 6000 courses per week per institution with a 1: 1 content transfer. Its clients include a long list of institutions such as Northeastern University, Wake Forest University, Rutgers University, Mohawk College, University of Southern Alabama, Sainte-Marie University of Minnesota, and Loyola University of New Orleans, to only cite a few.
