I will soon update my Blackboard environment SP14 to Q4-2016
What do you recommend me?
1- Update step by step until you reach this version
2- Perform a clean installation and restore the courses
Thanks for advance
Hi Juan Carlos,
Both options can be viable. If you are going route 1, make sure you've checked your upgrade paths to reach Q4 2016 from SP14. I would also advise doing checks after each upgrade as well to ensure that there is no issues with Learn, i.e. powering up and testing some functionality.
As mentioned elsewhere we migrated in spring 2016 to 2015Q4 by doing a clean install. Be aware that you not only have to restore courses, but also
- user data
- user accounts
- content system (institution folder, etc.)
- 3rd party building blocks and their data
and all that in the correct order. Succes is not garanteed....
If your current install is not broken or performing very, very poorly, you should consider an in-place-install in stead of doing a clean install.
