Thinking about Changing to a New LMS? Advice from Peers is at Your Fingertips! HILL

Published on

Learning management systems can generate significant anxiety among university administrators, faculty, and support staff on several levels. Procurement processes are time-consuming, and bring to the fore new stakeholders adamant about change. Following contract negotiations, the real fun begins with concerns of implementation, migration, training and support. Members of WCET’s newly established community interest group (CIG) on the Evaluation and Ownership of LMS’s will report on the real life experiences of several institutions as they moved through the cycle of evaluation, selection, implementation and ownership of commercial and open source LMS products. This session also includes highlights from a Delta Initiative study of the overall LMS marketplace and statewide strategies for LMS solutions. If your institution is going down the path of re-evaluating where you go next with the infrastructure to support your online educational programs, this session will offer timely, practical, valuable advice.

Moderators:
Ritchie Boyd, Instructional Technology Project Director, Montana State University
John Howard, Director of Distance Education, South Dakota State University

Presenters:
Lisa Cheney-Steen, Co-Executive Director, Colorado Community College Online
Steve Gance, Virtual Learning Environment Designer/Analyst, Portland State University
Phil Hill, Executive Vice President, Delta Initiative (IL)
Hae Okimoto, Director, Academic Technologies, University of Hawaii System
Loyce Pailen, Associate Provost, University of Maryland University College

  16. 16. Trends 16
  17. 17. Trends No one model for balance between central / local services supporting the LMS - Each reflects the culture & history of the system - Often includes combination of centralized services for smaller campuses, with local services for larger campuses - Maintaining flexibility for services is important - Integration of LMS with ERP and other systems is critical (class rosters, grades, identification, etc.) for adoption 17
  18. 18. Trends Changing definition of “centralization” - Started out as one LMS, one instance for all - Increasing usage leading to multiple instances - Infrastructure & performance needs - Specialized content/discipline needs (math symbols, foreign language interfaces, campus culture) - No existing LMS can scale to this size with one instance 18
  19. 19. Trends Major disruption driven externally by LMS vendors, not educational institutions or needs - Raises concern about impact on institutions - Leading to renewed discussions about open source solutions - Rethinking roles of various systems and how to organize services - Course management system - Content management system - Integration with Student Information Systems 19
  20. 20. LMS Market Trends to Watch Open source movement will grow, but not a panacea Managed and hosted services will grow, but not a panacea Big players (SIS and Publishers) will continue to try to enter market, but will not rush in Market will not change unless customer behavior changes - These are not typical market dynamics at play - Consortiums and open source providing most change 20
