Moving to Moodle: Reflections Two Years Later
Chao, Ining Tracy
EDUCAUSE Quarterly, v31 n3 p46-52 2008
Selecting and implementing a learning management system (LMS) is an important task for many higher education institutions, which can consult various resources when embarking on such endeavors. Educational technology practitioners regularly discuss system features, adoption strategies, support services, training, and evaluation. At Royal Roads University (RRU), these issues are very important because the university relies on a robust LMS to deliver its academic and professional programs in a blended, cohort-based mode--short-term on-campus residencies combined with fully online courses. This article outlines the issues RRU encountered during its transition to Moodle between mid-2006 and mid-2007, including lessons learned, some of the university's ongoing work, and anticipated future directions. Other institutions launching similar initiatives can take advantage of RRU's experience to ease their way. (Contains 1 table, 2 figures and 8 endnotes.)
