In this webinar from April 2010, Dr. David Levin from CSU Northridge and Dr. Linda Scott from CSU San Marcos spoke about their campus migrations from Blackboard to Moodle. They discussed the decision-making process on their campus, their timeline, course migrations, implementations, training and support resources, and lessons learned.

Kathy Fernandes and John Whitmer spoke about the Chancellor’s Office Initiative to provide systemwide LMS Services. These services began with the LMS RFP and CSU Sandboxes, and were expanded to provide an LMS “safety net” and a “superset” of LMS services that include systems, integrations, migrations, support services, and educational practices.

Participants will learn about these current efforts and plans for the implementation of the LMS recommendations approved by the CSU Academic Technology Steering Committee in December 2009.
