The University is currently conducting a review of Blackboard, the campus’ Learning Management System (LMS). 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 needs of teaching and learning. As part of the review process, three LMS vendors have been invited to demonstrate their LMS. There will be two one-hour faculty meetings with the vendors, during which time faculty will be able to try out the LMS and ask the vendor questions.  Instructors need only attend one of these sessions, which last one hour. Dates and times for the faculty LMS demonstrations will be:

Instructure's Canvas:                     Friday, October 12, 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

Brightspace's Desire to Learn:    Tuesday, October 16, 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

Blackboard’s new Ultra Learn:             Tuesday, November 6, 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

Faculty or staff with questions or concerns should contact Lorelle Wilson at 768-4253, lpwilson@hartford.edu.
