Migrating Learning Management Systems in Higher Education: Faculty Members' Perceptions of System Usage and Training When Transitioning from Blackboard Vista to Desire2Learn
Rucker, Ryan D.; Frass, Lydia R.
Journal of Educational Technology Systems, v46 n2 p259-277 Dec 2017
This study examined a migration from Blackboard Vista to Desire2Learn (D2L) within a multiuniversity system. Faculty members' perceptions from two of the systems' colleges were evaluated using a questionnaire based on Davis' technology acceptance model. Researchers analyzed responses for differences in system usage experience of faculty and in faculty usage of training and support services. Overall, faculty had positive experiences (or experienced few issues) with use of D2L and seemed to use fewer training and support resources during the migration. Although no statistically significant difference was found, recommendations were made to inform future migrations' success.
