I have been working on taking the materials that Peter Beyersdorf and I developed for the CFD interdisciplinary workshop on online teaching and putting them into a web page.
I ended up learning quite a bit about the way Desire2Learn exports files.
All of the structuring like the content page, and widgets do not export and there are so many layers of frames that it is difficult to piece the assets back together. Further the file names end up being pretty haphazard though I am going to bare that in mind as I am putting together my next course.
In fact though, the process was so painful that I think it would be easier to build the “backup” first out of linked web pages and then load the assets up to d2l.
I guess I need to see how that plays out.
