How to import content from DotED to ArtCenter Canvas

*If you have already requested a course migration for Fall 2022, you do not need to fill out another one. That import is underway and you will be notified upon completion.

A Sandbox Course is an empty course created by DTL that you can prepare before your official courses are created in Canvas. The contents of your current DotED course can be imported into the sandbox, which can then be imported into the official courses once they are visible in Canvas. The first step is to let us know what courses you would like us to import into your Sandbox, specifically the term and the full name of the course. We cannot complete any requests without this information.

Please submit all requests to:

The turnaround is 3-5 days, you will be notified when the process has been completed.

What to expect when content is imported?

Once your DotED content has been imported into Canvas, you will find all of the files, assignments, discussion boards and quizzes you created in the Canvas course. The structure of your DotED course has also been preserved and can be found in the Modules section of the Canvas course. There, you will find that each weekly section from DotED is now a separate module in Canvas. You can find more information about using modules here:

All files from your DotED courses can be found under the Files section of the course (they can also be downloaded in bulk from here). You can find more information about using Files here:
