Is it time to break up with your LMS? Our recent three-part series featured presenters and panelists from various institutions who switched to a new platform and made a change for the better. Topics included reliability, ease of migration, and adoption.
Becky Vasquez, VP and CIO at Embry-Riddle University, saw the LMS market evolving, but her previous LMS wasn’t keeping up. With an LMS riddled with serious downtime and unexpected changes, it was time for something new.
Watch this exclusive 1:1 interview with Becky and learn more about her journey, the considerations that informed her decisions, and the path to a successful implementation.
One of the first questions that arises when evaluating an LMS is “How will everything migrate?” From courses and enrollments to various systems integrations, switching to a new LMS can pose technical concerns.
Our advanced panel of Canvas admins included Scott Hines, Director of Academic Technology at Palo Alto University, who made the decision to switch to Canvas—largely for the easy migration—when PAU’s old LMS went out of business. You’ll also hear from other admins such as Krista LeBrun, Assistant Executive Director for eLearning and Instructional Technology at Mississippi Community College Board, who successfully administered a smooth transition.
Commitment to a new LMS only works if you have strong rollout and adoption strategies in place. What if we purchase a new LMS and no one uses it? How quickly can we train our teachers? And (the million-dollar question) will it create more engaging teaching and learning experiences?
Watch this unique panel discussion, featuring Rolin Moe, Director of Academic Innovation at Seattle Pacific University, to learn about how SPU switched to Canvas from an LMS that was regressing in use and user satisfaction. It’ll turn your anxieties about a “re-boot” of your LMS into inspiration for a “refresh” of your LMS.
