The group continued to draft the project charter, review the resources collected on the D2L course site, and worked on the work plan and deliverables.
Four sub-committees were formed. Since the task force is small, there were extensive overlaps. Members will have to work very hard to move all four fronts forward. The four sub-committees are:
1. Faculty Needs Assessment Group – to look at current LMS status, faculty and academic program view
Members: Peter, Jane, Jim*, Barbara*, Sharon, Lorna
2. Students Needs Assessment Group – to look at current LMS status, student view
Members: Jane, Barbara, Sharon*, Lorna, Jeff
3. Emerging Technologies Group – to scan emerging learning and technology trends
Members: Andy, Rovy, Dan, Sharon, Lorna, Jeff*, Jim
4. Environment Scanning Group – Scan current LMS environment
Members: Dan*, Lorna, Peter, Rovy, Andy*, Sharon, Jeff
The four sub-committees will meet separately before the next meeting and devise their own work plan.
