Hear about learning management system evaluation at next UCITE event

Representatives from Information Technology Services’ Teaching and Learning Technologies group will present on the university’s learning management system evaluation program at the next University Center for Innovation in Teaching and Education (UCITE) event. Faculty involved in an evaluation of Blackboard and other learning management systems will join the discussion.

A learning management system (LMS) is a comprehensive, integrated software that supports the development, delivery, assessment and administration of courses in traditional face-to-face, blended or online learning environments. Case Western Reserve University uses Blackboard Learn, ecurriculum and Moodle for most of the courses taught on campus.

The discussion will include:

  • An overview of the LMS evaluation, including the goals and timeline;
  • A presentation of data collected in fall 2015, including a satisfaction survey of Blackboard and other systems used on campus, as well as data related to systems being considered as potential replacements to Blackboard;
  • An open discussion of faculty use of Blackboard and other systems they have used; and
  • Ways faculty can get involved with the project and stay informed.

The session will be held Thursday, Jan. 21, from noon to 1 p.m. in the Allen Memorial Medical Library’s Herrick Room (use Adelbert Road doors).

Pizza and sodas will be provided at this session. RSVP to ucite@case.edu.
