Online Learning – Implementing a Learning Management System that Meets Your Clients Needs
General description of the project
This presentation helps other institutions understand the entire process required to evaluate and implement a new learning management system(LMS) that meets their client’s needs.
During this presentation, you will learn about key elements that a learning management system must have:
– Scalable solution (Storage demand)
– Cloud-based solution (Secure hosting)
– Ease of use and adoption
– Accessible platform
– Integrations with other Tools
– Support (Help Desk)
Attendees will also learn some best practices and recommendations to consider during the planning, evaluation, and implementation process of a new LMS. Besides that, we will share sample timelines that outline training sessions and all supporting resources such as handouts, support articles, demos, presentations, Help Desk knowledgebase, etc. to ease the transition and adoption for faculty and students. Attendees will also learn about major trends and innovations shaping the continuous evolution of learning management systems.
Explore the process to implement a new learning management system for a simple transition and adoption of faculty and students. Know which are the leading learning management systems in the market today.
Explain project results
Even though this project helps all the students, at UTRGV, 91% of our students are Hispanic students. This project mentions how important certain features of learning management systems adapt to the needs of Hispanic students which are the majority. Adaptive/Personalized learning is an example of an LMS feature that will benefit Hispanic students who may required to receive additional supporting documents and resources to succeed.
Why it should be considered best practice?
Other institutions should utilize these resources to help them in the evaluation process and decision making to adopt new learning management systems. It is important and recommended that institutions evaluate their LMS to make sure it meets their institution’s needs.
Highlights of your proposed presentation
A lesson to learn is that learning management systems are now an ecosystem that needs to integrate with multiple institutions’ solutions to improve the student and faculty experience, facilitate the exchange of data between systems, and help in the decision-making process with the use of analytics.
The Evaluation Committee will evaluate submitted proposals based on the following criteria. Each area will be rated on a scale from 1 to 7 (1= non-satisfactory; 7 =outstanding), for a maximum of 63 points.
