Abstract Body: Objectives This presentation will provide an overview of the project to migrate Stanford School of Medicine faculty, teaching staff, and their course materials from Sakai learning management system to Canvas. The Canvas Migration Project, which started in August 2015 (ongoing until January ‘17) has five major objectives: 1) Move all relevant course material to Canvas before the Sakai learning management system is taken offline on December 21, 2016. 2) Train interested faculty and teaching staff on Canvas features and processes. 3) Provide technical support for faculty and teaching staff during their course setup and delivery. 4) Provide current medical students a method of retrieving course materials from courses taken on the Sakai system during their time as a School of Medicine student at Stanford. 5) Provide a secure test taking environment for high-stakes exams. Methods This presentation will focus on the project management aspects of migrating over 500 courses from one learning management system to Canvas including: -The iterative planning process, -The creating and revising of communication strategies, -The execution of copying course materials, -Providing customer-service oriented faculty development and support, -Soliciting feedback from both faculty AND students, and -Piloting and implementation of Respondus LockDown Browser for secure test taking. Intended Outcomes In this small-group presentation attendees will learn one approach to managing a large scale course content migration process. We will include a brief discussion of low-cost, web-based tools used to facilitate, track and report. Surprises and lessons learned will be shared. We will conclude with time for attendees to share their experiences and ask questions. We intend for this session to be as much a conversation as a presentation. Target Audience This session is intended for both technical and academic administration interested in adopting and transitioning to a new learning management system.
