      Description

      We are currently using Blackboard 6.2.3 (build 6) and Moodle 1.5.2 here at SFSU and we are expecting that in Fall 2006 semester more and more instructors will switch to Moodle. However, we need to get prepared for doing a lot of BB to Moodle conversion and the current built-in (or inbuilt) BB to Moodle conversion tool provided by Moodle is not really good enough. We tested it for a lot of courses and most of the quizzes and discussion forums could not be migraded from BB to Moodle successfully (we tested it on 1.5.2, 1.5.3 and 1.6, all seems to have the same result). It seems that the Moodle community has stopped developing this conversion tool but we would like to continue to work on this. Hope to coordinate the efforts with the moodle dev team to come up with a plan to tackle this. Thanks!

      Currently we are taking a look at the codes that one of our previous student assistant Dina wrote (see: http://welearn.sfsu.edu/ctt/), and convert it into PHP codes to merge with the current Moodle built-in restore code. Dina's tool seem to do a much better job than the Moodle built-in tool, especially for the quiz part. I will upload some documents for you guys' reading pleasure...
