  • 8. Slow rollouts got stuck at pilot stage Academics didn’t influence each other quickly Pressure for fast solution Goal: implement for all UG courses by October Big bang
  • 9. Could only persuade, not demand Inputting lists from scratch still time-consuming Had to make Aspire the obvious option Decision: Library to pump-prime the system Library conversion
  • 10. Attempt to migrate data from in-house system Data too old, too limited No structure Delayed manual conversion Data migration
  • 11. Production line Take lists from Moodle Replicate structure and notes Guesswork! Manual conversion

  • 14. Temps are faster than Library staff Need good quality control Need a lot of motivation Useful way of auditing VLE What did we learn?
  • 15. Advocacy
  • 16. Awareness of the new system: Positive potential for them and their students Commitment to use the system after conversion Orientation and training Purpose
  • 17. Teachers and administrators Generic emails unsuccessful Individual approach much more effective Emails and notices
