Course Management Systems: A Change on the Horizon?

Monday, June 02 | 5:45PM–6:30PM | City Terrace 4 (Third Floor)
Session Type: Professional Development
Course management systems provide many features that enhance teaching and learning. Choosing one from among the many systems available is a major decision and commitment for any institution. The best way to evaluate a CMS is a semester-long test to ensure that both instructors and students gain a deep understanding of its features and limitations. Currently we are conducting a CMS project in which three platforms are running simultaneously: Blackboard, Moodle, and Sakai. The project will evaluate the usability/management for each. This presentation will discuss the challenges and lessons learned during our project.
