So you’re contemplating changing eLearning Platforms and need to migrate…
We provide eLearning Migration solutions customized to your needs.
Migrating your platform can be an overwhelming process that most people would prefer to avoid if at all possible, which is a prime factor in why we offer LMS Migration Services as an integral part of our core services available to our clients.
No eLearning platform migration is the same. Each platform migration is as unique as the organization’s course offerings that need to be moved from one platform to another. Given that there is no “typical” migration, each client’s migration from their old platform to the new platform needs to be individually scoped to best accurately assess the requirements for a successful migration.
Allowing us to develop a detailed plan for your eLearning platform’s migration benefits you in two ways:
- A personalized migration plan allows us to determine how to move your data most efficiently while also minimizing any downtime (and lost revenue) you could potentially experience while moving from one LMS to another.
- We also are better able to ensure that the integrity of your data is preserved and that your imported data is integrated correctly within its new platform.
We have experience with both types of Platform Migration.
While course file formats (such as SCORM and Tin Can/xAPI) can be standardized across different platforms, that does not necessarily mean platform migration is plug-and-play even if both platforms are compliant with the same format.
Beyond this, there are two primary types of eLearning platform migration, with each requiring a different process to successfully complete the migration from one system to another.
Migration from an in-house, proprietary platform. A platform that was developed specifically as a customized, in-house solution by a company is not only unique unto itself but also is a complex and substantial undertaking to migrate. This type of migration is best left to professionals who have a detailed understanding of the platform the course content will be moved into as well as can troubleshoot any technical difficulties that may occur within the proprietary platform.
Migration from a large scale, standardized platform. Established platforms (such as Moodle), while not as complex as an in-house platform migration, will still require detailed work and robust planning when migrating. While standardized eLearning platforms are utilized by many organizations and are not as unique as a proprietary in-house platform, they still possess nuanced features one must be mindful of during a migration.
