As some of you know, I worked with the Moodle project that was a
proposed replacement for the ANGEL Learning Management System (LMS).
Leadership has decided to not go with Moodle. Blackboard is a proposed
LMS replacement for ANGEL. I will not be attending the next ATC meeting
on Thursday, February 23, so I can attend the Blackboard demo. The other
proposed replacement is Desire2Learn. There will be public demos for
Desire2Learn as well.
I will follow-up this email with the Deans and Chairs email from Brendan
Guenther that has the demo schedule. I suggest that ATC members try to
attend at least one of each of the demos. Please ask questions regarding
accessibility and usability.
