The Learning Management System Evolution. CDS Spotlight Report. Research Bulletin
Lang, Leah; Pirani, Judith A.
This Spotlight focuses on data from the 2013 Core Data Service (CDS) to better understand how higher education institutions approach learning management systems (LMSs). Information provided for this Spotlight was derived from Module 8 of the Core Data Service, which contains several questions regarding information systems and applications. Responses from 525 institutions were analyzed. Only U.S. institutions with a designated Carnegie Classification (AA, BA, MA, or DR) were analyzed for this report. In addition, we interviewed four subject-matter experts to gain insights about the current and future state of LMSs in higher education.
