LMS Pilot Project

The Faculty LMS Succession Committee has selected a representative group of faculty to participate in testing one, or both, of the two finalist platforms in live instruction, supported by the OIT Teaching and Learning Technologies team. Evaluations from this pilot group of faculty and courses will be used to build a requirements list by which the two potential LMS will be evaluated against.
