LMS Evaluation: Another Opportunity for Providing Feedback

Our evaluation of learning management systems continues this week and I wanted to make you aware of another opportunity you have to participate and provide feedback.

In order to draw further distinctions between two of the learning management systems that we are evaluating, Canvas and Schoology, we have scheduled follow-up conversations with both providers to which you are both invited and encouraged to attend.  Please note that there are participation options (below) for those who might be unable to attend.

Schoology Session:
Face-to-face on Thursday, July 31, 8:15-9:15, PDC (Rm 605), Max seats: 30, ERO SRN 943141501 (register to secure a seat)
Live, web-based session option
Recorded session option (link will be shared following the session)

Canvas Session:
Face-to-face on Thursday, July 31, 10:00-11:00, PDC (Rm 605), Max seats 30, ERO SRN 943141502 (register to secure a seat)
Live, web-based session option
Recorded session option (link will be shared following the session)

Obviously, if you'd like your feedback from this portion of the evaluative process to be considered, you would need to either attend or watch both (Canvas and Schoology) sessions.  Those that are able to participate in the live session will have the opportunity to ask questions.  Here is a suggested document for taking notes during both sessions.

For those who choose to watch and evaluate the recorded versions, there will be a 5 day window in which you can view the sessions and complete the evaluations.  All evaluations are due by 11:59 pm on Tuesday, August 5.

I know that we are approaching an especially busy time of the summer, with lots of training requirements and professional learning opportunities.  Despite these obligations, I hope that you will participate in this very important process.
