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 the LMS Evaluation team for a series of presentations on Friday, April 21. At the end of each session, attendees will have the opportunity to give feedback on the LMS they observed. 

Teaching and learning-focused presentations

Representatives from the LMS companies will give a 25-minute presentation on their user interface, from both the faculty and student views.

General session

Friday, April 21, noon to 1:45 p.m.
Visual Arts Complex, room 1B20

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

  • 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. You will be asked to complete a survey to provide feedback on the LMS’s ease of use and functionality.

If you have questions about either of these events, please fill out the LMS team's contact form.
