Transition or Transformation: Implementing a New LMS, August 13, 2010

Inspired by a number of discussions at the Annual Conference on Distance Teaching and Learning in Madison Wisconsin,  we consider the process of transitioning from a proprietary learning management system such as Blackboard to an open source system such as Moodle. Keith Lynip, director of Extended Learning Services at The University of Montana, discusses the nature of this process from the request for information from vendors to the selection of an open-source provider. Questions such as how to support faculty in this transition/transformation process are addressed.
