ConversionThingy is a program that reads ANGEL 7.3 and 7.4 course archives and converts their course content into native objects in Moodle 1.98 and Moodle 2.0 backup files. The conversion brings in as much as it can reasonably translate from the one LMS to the other: most of the items ordinarily located under the ANGEL Lessons tab get shifted, including folders, pages, url links, files, discussion forums, dropboxes, assessments, and WIKIs. Also included in the conversion are gradebook categories and assignments (along with their content linkages and weights), grade scales (mapping number/letter grades), chat rooms, team ids (and descriptions), and question banks, as is the syllabus, whether it was constructed on a template, uploaded as a file, or linked to an external resource. Converted materials turn up not just as linked file resources (as they presently do with the IMS Common Cartridge imports), but as native Moodle objects that can be further manipulated, configured, and edited as though they had been created in Moodle in the first place.
