What’s Next for the Learning Management System

What’s next for learning the management system?

Wentworth faculty, students, and staff turned out this fall to provide feedback on three learning management systems (Brightspace, Canvas, and Blackboard Ultra) to replace our current Blackboard Learn LMS in the upcoming academic year. Community feedback was gathered and testing of these products against use cases (identified by the LMS Taskforce and given to each of the vendors as part of the RFP) is underway. A small team of faculty, students, staff, and academic leaders were invited to review the vendor evaluations, make a recommendation for selection of Wentworth’s next LMS, participate in defining a transition and rollout plan for migration from Blackboard Learn (current LMS) to the new, and recommend minimum use criteria and a course template. The LMS Selection and Rollout Steering team will meet first part of Spring to forward their recommendations. Members include:
