Apart from the preparation, the migration process itself is also not as easy as it may seem. It’s not the same as just the simple export and import of data. Especially when there are multiple companies involved: with CIEH, clients had their own settings for their particular courses. These settings had to be taken into account when moving the content. Besides, the type of data is also important. If your platform uses a SCORM format, it’s rather easy to move data (although still not as simple as copy-pasting everything). You’ll have more trouble moving data if your old platform uses other content and settings.
This is where the aNewSpring team provided a lot of support. As far as Stephen and his team are concerned, our knowledge of our own platform – as well as the understanding of settings within other platforms because we have some real tech-lovers in our team – abled us to support the migration process. However, the real heavy lifting was done by the team at CIEH themselves. After all, they had to decide on how they wished their new portfolio to be structured!
