On Friday, April 20th we will be holding two focus group sessions in the KF Room (Mortensen Library) at 9-10am and 11-12pm. Please plan to join us for fun, food, and conversation about what an ideal LMS looks like. All faculty and staff are welcome. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org and indicate which session you plan to attend.
As part of the ITEC Strategic Plan, the University is currently conducting a review of Blackboard, the campus’ Learning Management System (LMS). These focus groups are a critical component of the review process. Please note that a review does not necessarily mean replacing the current LMS, but is a common best practice for most campuses, conducted in order to determine whether or not the current LMS is meeting the current needs of teaching and learning, including face-to-face, hybrid, and fully online classes. The review will entail an evaluation of the full potential of Blackboard, as well as alternate comparable learning management systems.
