Currently have courses in SumTotal, which is godawful. But I'd like to get an idea of what's involved in migrating my courses into the Adobe system.

If you assign yourself the role of Integration Admin on the account, you can then change roles to Integration Admin and gain access to the Migration Toolkit.  Typically you export courses and history from Sumtotal to an FTP, fill out the migration template excel file, and then upload them all to Captivate Prime, but that is an over simplification.  Are you working with a Partner or just Directly with Adobe?  We offer some additional help and free training for implementation and beyond.

It is probably better to move your question to the Prime forum, which I will do for you.

Captivate Prime defines canonical formats for ingesting data and content in the context of a typical LMS migration project. Please see Reference manual for Integration Administrators who want to migrate an existing LMS to Captivate Pri... to get an idea.

Thanks for the reply -- it's helpful to have a response that actually references our current LMS.

We're still in the exploratory phase to determine whether it's worth the pain, effort, and expense of adopting a new LMS. So I guess next we'll take a look at what it takes to export courses and history.

Hi Joe,

Data Migration efforts depend on quite a few factors. In your case, are you just looking at migrating courses or also at migrating the user data as well. I can send you a sample excel format in which you need to migrate the data.

Can you please drop an email on nisarora@adobe.com?

Best,

Nisha Arora
