Efficient Course migrations.
How can Crane migrations support your organisation?
Crane equips schools, institutions, and universities with the ability to effortlessly transition to a new LMS in record time.
SELF-SERVICE AND FULL-SERVICE MIGRATIONS
Crane makes LMS migrations easy and efficient using intuitive and straightforward automated self-service dashboards. Institutions can harness the power of Crane across several migration service options to meet their specific migration priorities.
1. The base tier is fully automated self-service migration and the most affordable migration option. In this tier, customers are responsible for managing their migration and fixing any issues or functional differences between courses in their new LMS.
2. Our “Like-4-Like” or full-service migration offers more hands-on support for institutions based on their specific migration needs. Crane Migration experts are responsible for managing the migration and fixing any issues or functional differences between courses in this tier.
3. The Transformation Migration Service is a holistic 360 review, shift and lift of your migrated content in your new LMS. In addition to working with our Crane Migration experts, you will also work with Course Design Specialists to uplift the look and feel of courses in the new system.
Our migration experts can help you identify the right approach for your institution.
Map My Data
When moving to a new LMS, it is essential to map the data and features of your existing LMS that you want to shift. Data mapping is crucial to a successful migration project because each LMS has a different data structure and table logic.
Data mapping helps you identify the data and features of your existing LMS and how they will be displayed in your new LMS. Every Crane Migration involves a short data mapping assessment with our migration experts, who determine the structure and critical information.
Archive My Data
When migrating from one LMS platform to another, understanding how to manage and maintain access to past courses and student records to compliance standards should be a critical component of the migration strategy. Crane Archiving Service assists institutions with the essential task of storing course content and student data from the legacy LMS into a fully browsable cloud-based archive.
Pilot Migration And Goal Setting
All Crane Migrations, regardless of the type of migration service level you choose (self-service, full-service or complete transformation), include an initial QA check and pilot run of a minimum of three courses from your existing to target LMS. One of the significant benefits of a Crane Migration is our pilot testing. During the pilot, we identify and address errors, fine-tune the automation framework, review and organize all features to ensure the migration goals, such as scalability and compatibility requirements, are met.
LMS' WE SUPPORT
Crane has successfully helped institutions migrate thousands of courses between the following LMS platforms: Blackboard, Brightspace, Canvas and Moodle. If your LMS isn’t listed, not to worry! Crane can efficiently deploy automated migrations for most LMS platforms that offer common cartridge exports or API’s. Reach out to organize an LMS assessment.
Audit and Cleanse my Data
Another crucial initial step of any migration project is data auditing and cleansing. During pre-migration activities, taking the time up front to analyse your data to assess for course duplicates, inadequate descriptions, courses no longer in use, and inaccurate and outdated information, help you to pinpoint what needs to be discarded or sorted out before moving anything.
Crane will also audit individual courses and supports identifying features, such as links and videos, helping maintain the highest standard and ensure immediate usability of migrated content.
Quality and Consistency
Introducing continuous Quality Assurance (QA) into your migration project is beneficial for an efficient and successful migration. Employing several QA checks as a critical component of your data migration project is the best method of ensuring all possible errors are identified and fixed during the migration process so that your new LMS is functionally ready from day one.
Cost Optimise My Migration
Crane Migration and Archiving Services enable institutions to transition from one LMS to another efficiently. By replacing manual, time-intensive migration processes with Crane Automation, courses are moved expertly and swiftly from your old LMS to new LMS in a fraction of the time and cost. Crane offers institutions three tiers of Migration Service levels: Automation Only, Like-4-Like, or Transformation options making it an affordable migration solution for any budget.
