After reviewing results from surveys and open forums, examining data on current LMS usage at Missouri S&T, and collecting input from faculty representing a range of use cases, the LMS committee reached a unanimous decision on October 30th: Blackboard may not be adequately meeting the needs of Missouri S&T faculty and students, and should be evaluated against alternative learning management systems to determine the best fit for our campus.
The committee recommended that Blackboard and 2-3 additional LMS alternatives be evaluated in an actual course environment beginning as soon as January.
Blackboard will host a presentation on Wednesday, January 22 at 10:00 a.m. in the Maramec/Gasconade Room in the Havener Center.
All faculty and students are welcome to attend!
