Materials from a GauchoSpace course can be exported and imported into a Canvas course. This article will walk you through how to:
- Create a backup of a GauchoSpace course.
- Import that backup into a Canvas course.
Once materials have been imported, they can be edited or deleted in the Canvas course site.
Note: There is not a direct 1-to-1 import process between GauchoSpace and Canvas. With some adjusting, most materials can be brought into Canvas from GauchoSpace. Refer to this help article to refer to what activities will map to in Canvas: GauchoSpace to Canvas Introduction
GauchoSpace and Canvas gradebooks operate differently. We recommend reviewing this article and your course's Grades tab after importing to ensure that your Canvas gradebook is working as expected.
Here's how to create a backup of a GauchoSpace course:
Not all materials will be imported into a Canvas course. For example, there is no equivalent of the GauchoSpace "Lesson" activity in Canvas and therefore, lessons will not be imported. For information on activity compatibility between GauchoSpace and Canvas, please review the "Activity and Resource Equivalencies from GauchoSpace to Canvas" section in this article: GauchoSpace to Canvas Introduction
Only one import can processed at a time.
- Quizzes typically come over as "Practice Quizzes" and will need to be changed to "Graded Quizzes"
Canvas does not support subfolder structure in Question banks (Classic Quizzes) or Item Banks (New Quizzes). When importing question banks, questions will be added to their most granular category and some organizational structure may be lost. For example, if there is a category titled Exam 1 that contains three sub-categories “A”, “B”, and “C”, Canvas will import the sub-categories “A”, “B”, and “C” but they will not be nested under a larger category titled Exam 1.
