There are many opportunities to learn more about the learning management systems (LMS) being evaluated as a part of the LMS Evaluation and Selection Initiative. 

Join us for a series of presentations on Friday, April 21. At the end of each session, you will have the opportunity to give feedback on the LMS you observed.

General Session

Location: Visual Arts Complex Room 1B20
Friday April 21, 12:00 p.m. - 1:45 p.m.

During this back-to-back session, each supplier will have 30 minutes to share key information about their LMS and answering the following questions:

  • What makes you the best fit for our faculty and students? 
  • What will it be like to transition to your product or, in the case of D2L, from the old interface to the new interface? 
  • Suppliers appear to be on a continuum of open source to closed source. Describe where your product and associated support is on that continuum and why it’s beneficial for us to adopt that model? 
  • Company qualifications.

Request a sandbox 

Request a sandbox test course in the systems being reviewed. You can use these courses to try out the LMSs. We will ask you to complete a survey to provide us with feedback on the LMS’s ease of use and functionality.
