PRESS RELEASE  K16 Solutions Announces Third Sakai Migration

By K16 Solutions on Oct 13, 2020 6:19:27 PM

K16 Solutions is proud to announce its third successful integration with Sakai.

Press Release:

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Oct. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- K16 Solutions, the industry leader in EdTech for LMS migration and course design, announced it has successfully completed another full and comprehensive LMS platform migration from Sakai to Canvas. Rutgers University recently leveraged K16 Solutions' breakthrough technology, Scaffold, to move to Canvas, marking the company's third, full-scale Sakai migration in its short history.

Previously, K16 Solutions helped migrate Wake Forest University and the University of South Alabama from Sakai. The case of Rutgers University is especially notable in that the institution was on several LMS platforms, including Blackboard, and needed to find a quick, automated, and accurate solution to migrate and transform content from all its LMS platforms to just one.

Rutgers University Associate Director of IT Accessibility and Instructional Technology Charles Colic, Jr. said, "When K16 Solutions joined us at the table to discuss the unique challenges around our LMS transition to Canvas, they did not come with a quick-fix to sell us, but rather an offer to partner with Rutgers in identifying the issues, developing a solution, and implementing it in a way that would meet the needs of all our stakeholders. Throughout the experience, the K16 team showcased their technical prowess, willingness to collaborate, and most importantly, empathy for our faculty and students."

Dr. Thomas Waite, president, and CEO at K16, shared, "We have migrated well over 125,000 courses with our Scaffold technology and can integrate with all major LMS platforms including Sakai, Blackboard, D2L, Moodle, and Canvas. Over the past six months, K16 Solutions has successfully migrated tens of thousands of courses with over a dozen institutions. We look forward to helping others who need to migrate off of Sakai, or another platform, and we're ready to make this process painless for them, their faculty, and their students."

Founded by experienced higher education leaders, faculty, and academic entrepreneurs, K16 Solutions solves the biggest LMS challenges facing institutions today. Scaffold technology, powered by K16 Solutions, allows schools to easily and seamlessly migrate LMS platforms, build better courses, and archive outdated online courses.

PRESS RELEASE  K16 Solutions Announces Groundbreaking Achievement

By K16 Solutions on Sep 29, 2020 4:12:00 PM

K16 Solutions is proud to announce the successful integration with Moodle, the newest addition to our LMS integrations list thanks to a recent partnership with California State University, Fullerton.

Press Release:

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Sept. 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- K16 Solutions, the industry leader in EdTech for LMS migration and course design, announced it has successfully integrated with the LMS platform, Moodle. This integration was made possible through K16 Solutions' partnership with California State University, Fullerton, when the institution needed to migrate its course content from Moodle into Canvas.

The project started by conducting some initial integration testing within CSU Fullerton's LMS Moodle platform. After testing was complete, K16 Solutions began migrating the university's courses in bulk. Within thirty days of the project starting, K16 Solutions successfully migrated over 10,000 ready-to-teach courses out of Moodle.

"CSU Fullerton partnered with K16 Solutions for the development of Moodle integrations in their Scaffold Migration platform. Once the integration project was completed, we were able to begin moving courses in bulk from Moodle to Canvas and have already moved well over 10,000 courses with another large batch planned before the end of the year. Using an automated solution like Scaffold Migration has saved our faculty and staff countless hours that would have been spent transferring and repairing course content," said Dr. Amir Dabirian, VP for IT/CIO, California State University, Fullerton.

K16 Solutions has successfully migrated over 100,000 courses with Scaffold Migration and has now added Moodle to its existing LMS integrations list, which includes Sakai, Blackboard, D2L, and Canvas. "This singular achievement has never before been realized, and we are thrilled that we now have the ability to help virtually every institution migrate to the LMS platform of their choice," said K16 Solutions CEO and president, Dr. Thomas Waite.

K16 Solutions has successfully completed LMS course migrations with other institutions such as Northeastern University, Wake Forest University, Rutgers University, Mohawk College, Ottawa College, University of Southern Alabama, and more.
