The Kivuto to D2L migration topic

In the Spring of 2020 VMware IT Academy will be migrating to D2L, a new Learning Management System (LMS). We will be migrating from Kivuto Solutions to D2L Brightspace. D2L is an industry leader and their LMS platform Brightspace is the ideal solution for our learning community.

This migration will affect VMUG license program members, the VMware IT Academy members, and the VMware Academic Software License members.

In this thread we will be engaging with the members of these programs on the various questions, comments or remarks that they might have.

Ask away!

Our current VMware IT Academy subscription is paid up until July 2022.

How will this be affected?

Hello! You will have Kivuto Support until the last day of your subscription with Kivuto, you won't be affected, your time will be respected.

After your subscription ends in 2022 you will be asked to change to the new solution

Hope I was clear enough!

Do you have any more questions?

I appreciate this move. It is almost August now and I haven't seen any updates on the D2L transition in a while. How is it going? It would be great if it were running two weeks before the school year started.

Hi!

From a D2L perspective the platform is ready to be launched, we have experienced unexpected delays due to the current situation in the world, but this has given us more time to tune up the platform even more, adding more value for institutions as soon as they are able to migrate

We will have an update quite soon, thank you!

Update on the pricing that our resource portal provider D2L will charge to cover their costs:

- block of 200 user tokens: 330 USD

- block of 400 user tokens: 505 USD

If the payment is done through a purchase order there will be an additional 50 USD handling fee.
