Impact: Administrators

We are committed to ensuring a smoother transition experience ahead of the removal of Building Blocks. To help, we've enhanced Building Block content migration related to converting Kaltura content in Original Courses. The conversion transforms Building Block links to LTI links.

Administrators can manage placements through intuitive drop-down menus, simplifying the Building Block transition process.

The Content Migration Tool service for Kaltura can be accessed through Administrator Tools.
