On Feb 9, the LMS Task Force worked with consultant Phil Hill of Delta Initiative for a one day on surveying the LMS landscape in Higher Education, especially peer university systems of comparative size. Drivers for changing LMS, processes various institutions employ to evaluate systems, LMS related issues and future trends were discussed. Phil also gave a presentation to the Learn@UW and CIO groups via web conference. Phil’s information validated many of the findings the task force has researched independently and added new perspectives to looking at the LMS market. A follow-up session to wrap up additional questions took place today, March 3. Recommendations drawn from the consultation sessions will be shared through the final report to the Learn@UW Exec Committee.
