How to Export eCampus Content


eCampus to Canvas Content Migration Guide

The process to migrate your eCampus course to Canvas will vary depending on the course size. As a best practice, we recommend for all content, such as PDFs, PowerPoint Presentations, and Documents, to be hosted on Google Drive at TAMU. To learn more about this unlimited storage solution, as well as other multimedia solutions, please visit our Multimedia site.

Below are the steps you may need to take depending on your eCampus course size.

Start Here: Calculate eCampus Course Package Size

eCampus offers you the ability to calculate your course export package size. This feature will help you determine if it is possible to export your course and migrate it directly into Canvas in a few simple steps.
