The Migration Automation Tool

Cut Your Course Migration Rate By Up To 50%!

Yes, you read that right . And we’ve proven it through a friendly little competition we held at RMIT Online: Pitting a tested manual Blackboard to Canvas migration process against Crane.

Processing exactly the same set of courses, the results shocked everyone with a mind-blowing 54% in time savings.

And the productivity improvements were compounded as learning designers were able to reinvest their time working with, and supporting academics.

What is Crane?

Crane is a very clever ETL (Extract, Transform and Load) tool that triages and migrates courses from one LMS to another. And based on our clients’ feedback, it does it faster, cheaper and with far less errors than existing approaches.

Why? Because with the Crystal Delta team’s configuration, Crane extracts, transforms and loads a more complex mix of output files from the legacy LMS into the target LMS than existing tools.

Why Use Crane?

  • Effective and efficient
  • Economical and improves productivity
  • Delivers dependable and consistent results
  • Helps teams avoid unconscious bias and minimises fatigue-based errors
  • Builds greater confidence in production schedule targets

No matter which LMS you choose to migrate to, Crane will be able to save you time and money. Contact us to find out more.

How Does Crane Do It?

Sit back, and enjoy the music while the tool does its thing. Our engineers will carefully watch the output.

Easily Add and Edit Text and Media
There are many types of building blocks available, from single to multi-column sections, to the most common text, link, image, and video blocks. And we’re adding more.

The Offline Content Generator Tool

Canvas is a pretty good LMS, but in order for students to access the learning content they need to be online. Which means, all the times where they are without an internet connection, they are not able to learn.

With the Crystal Delta Offline Content Generator Tool for Canvas LMS, it is now possible for users to create a PDF document of the enrolled course and take it with them anywhere.

The Offline Content Generator preserves all the Canvas page and learning module layout so what learning designers have devised is transported over to the PDF document.

For Instructors

Step 1. Click on the Generate PDF Button
Implementing the Offline Content Generator with your instance of Canvas LMS shows up as a Generate PDF button in the Courses section. An instructor can then go to any page and select this button to initiate the process. After some initial authentication, the task is handed over to our servers.
Step 2. Generated PDF is Saved in the Files Section
The Offline Content Generator running on our servers will take a little time to go through all the course content, the various modules and all the layouts to preserve the structure as defined by the learning designers. This way, the PDF that gets saved in the Files section of the Canvas instance closely resembles the online content.

For Students

Simply Download the PDF
In the Student view of the Canvas instance, a student can go to the files section for the courses they are enrolled in. If the instructor has generated offline content, then all a student needs to do is to simply download the file. Now they can learn pretty much anywhere.
