The Digital Experience Committee and Teaching and Learning with Technology (TL Tech) Committee are currently conducting a review of Learning Management Systems (LMS). Lesley has been using Blackboard as its LMS since 2005. eLearning and the LMS market have changed a lot since then. It seemed worth looking at the available options to see if Blackboard is still meeting the needs of our faculty and students.
After a careful review of several LMS options and conversations with a smaller group of TL Tech faculty, Canvas and Blackboard have been invited to campus to provide demos for faculty. We strongly encourage you to join us and bring your questions.
