What's My Role?

To ensure everyone has a voice in the final LMS recommendation, the LMS Selection Committee has developed a selection process that consists of vendor demonstrations, hands-on workshops with vendors, trial accounts with each vendor, webinars, and a faculty and staff forum.

The process has been designed to involve the faculty through every step.

Step 1: Log into your practice course in the demonstration LMS's

(Please click on each vendor’s page in the menu to review the login information for that LMS Evaluation site)

Step 2: Attend the Demonstrations (online, in person, or view the recordings)

Step 3: Attend the Hands-on workshops

Step 4: Practice creating course content or moving one of your existing courses into the LMS

Step 5: Attend a Feedback Forum

Step 6: Submit your feedback via the Survey
