NAU will be moving from Bb Vista to a new Learning Management System (LMS). Your assistance in the selection of NAU's next LMS is very important. Thank you in advance for your participation and input. The two most likely LMS replacement candidates are Blackboard Learn and Moodle. To compare the two, you will work through seven "use cases" developed by e-Learning. The use cases cover 1) content creation, 2) assessment creation, 3) assignment creation, 4) discussion creation, 5) assessment grading, 6) assignment grading and 7) discussion grading. By enrolling in one of these LMS testing sessions, you will be added to a Bb Vista course where you will find instructions for the seven use case scenarios. After completion of each module, which should take less than an hour each, you will complete a survey giving us your input on the two systems. You will be given "sandbox" accounts on both Learn and Moodle where you will follow the instructions provided for each use case. You can complete these use cases in one of three ways: 1) in person, synchronously at supported North and South Mountain Campus locations (refer to the schedule in the Flagstaff section), 2) online, asynchronously, with support from our ELC Help desk during regular business hours, or 3) online, synchronously (with Elluminate support). In all cases, you will be able to work at your own pace. For each LMS, use your regular NAU ID and password to log in. Please enroll in only one of the three session types so that we can track your participation and create the necessary LMS accounts. You will be able to work online and asynchronously regardless of the session type you select. If you plan to work entirely on your own, please select the online asynchronous option.
