5/3/2015 20:54:17Instuctor10Yes4... would be an adequate choiceBlackboard is not the best choice, but it is adequate. Additionally we have a lot of experience with it, our instructors know it pretty well and we have a lot of courses already built out in it.Yes5... is the LMS that Elmhurst College should chooseCanvas is super easy to use and has the bells and whistles that we would need.I have never heard of itYes2... would be an adequate choiceD2L would be OK, but there is no reason to choose it over its institutional counterpart, Blackboard. If we are going to continue to pay massive amounts of money to a for-profit, why not choose the easier one to continue with?NoYes3... would impede education at Elmhurst CollegeI think Classroom is great, but it just doesn't have all of the pieces we need. Most importantly, there is no integrated gradebook.
I have never heard of itYes4... is the LMS that Elmhurst College should chooseMoodle would be great. It is easy to use. The student sees everything they need right at the top, we can handle the admin ourselves and keep the funds in-house. Moodle can do everything that Blackboard can do. There is no reason to pay for functionality that is free.NoNo

5/4/2015 11:47:30Student5Yes5... is the LMS that Elmhurst College should chooseBlackboard is simple and organized. Elmhurst should utilize the mobile phone application. It is much more convenient for students to check grades and get assignments directly to their phones compared to having to login to the Elmhurst portal and then blackboard separately.NoNoNoYes4... would be an adequate choiceI have used this for blog posts I believe, it was alright.

29
5/4/2015 11:53:11Student3Yes5... would be an adequate choiceI think the blogging tools aren't the greatest, but not many professors I have had used it anyway. I do think that the overall system has been easy to use since the content can be easily organized and easy to find on behalf of the students.NoI have never heard of itYes4... would be an excellent choiceI think D2L has a much better platform for courses that require online participation through blogging and modules. I love that the professors can create checklists for each week so the students are able to see if they have completed all of their online tasks. I think the discussion boards are much easier to use than Blackboard and the content can be organized and found very easily.I have never heard of itI have never heard of itI have never heard of itI have never heard of itI have never heard of itI have never heard of it

32
5/4/2015 11:58:01Instuctor10+Yes5... would be an excellent choiceSince I have only used Blackboard in 14 years of teaching, I'm biased in its favor. I certainly don't have the time to learn a new LMS, and functionally, I think Blackboard does everything that we need an LMS to do. I have never heard of itI have never heard of itYes1... would be an adequate choiceI have never used D2L, though I have heard other professors complain about it. I have never heard of itYes3... would be an excellent choiceThough I've never integrated Google Classroom into all of my classes, I have had students use Google Docs and other programs with great success. Google's programs are easy, user-friendly, and habitable. I'm not sure what the reasoning was for limiting access to Google, which was announced in the recent technology update distributed to the college community, but that decision was a very poor one. And, what is more, to my understanding, Google is free. All the better. I have never heard of itYes3... would impede education at Elmhurst CollegeI tried to use Moodle in the past and it was just too frustrating. I just don't have the time and energy to build a site from the ground up. I need an LMS with the infrastructure already in place. Yes1... would impede education at Elmhurst CollegeAs a professor and as someone who cares about the educational system, I have an ethical obligation to repudiate any product offered by Pearson. That company does only harm, and quite frankly, we are violating our college's values by even considering any product sold by that awful corporation.I have never heard of itJust my two cents: I think that we should go with either Blackboard or Google.

It's what I learned on and I miss it all the time around here.Yes2... would impede education at Elmhurst CollegeI don't think we want to tie ourselves this closely to a particular textbook publisher. (Also, I've heard complaints from a friend who has to use it.)No
42
5/4/2015 12:15:50Instuctor10+Yes1... is the LMS that Elmhurst College should chooseI have overall found Blackboard to be:

1. Quickly mastered
2. Intuitive and easy to use

This applies to use as both faculty at EC and student at UIC.

So, I'm a fan of Blackboard.
I have never heard of itI have never heard of itYes4... would impede education at Elmhurst CollegeI have taught a total of 4 courses in D2L, and have helped others in my department build courses and taught them how to weight grades in D2L gradebook.

I had to figure out how to weight grades on my own last December, doing so at 1am using a combination of YouTube tutorials and trial & error. The guidance I got from EC on this issue was from the company's site but was unclear & insufficient. The D2L company was non-responsive to requests for help.

I have found D2L to be overly complicated, non-intuitive, and slow to master: I am still struggling with it while teaching my 4th course.

The supposed "richer" features of D2L are not at all worth the heavy investment of time and resultant faculty frustration involved.

Please discontinue D2L!
I have never heard of itI have never heard of itI have never heard of itYes1... would be an adequate choiceMy children used Moodle in high school and had no complaints. That is the sum of my knowledge on Moodle.I have never heard of itYes3... would be an adequate choiceI used this system as a student in a 10 day course I took in Summer 2011 at University of NC-Chapel Hill.

It was very similar to Blackboard & therefore was easy to use form.
Get rid of D2L, please!
43
5/4/2015 12:17:04Instuctor10+Yes4... would be an adequate choicePro: Familiarity for the campusNoI have never heard of itYes2... would impede education at Elmhurst CollegeI think D2L has many nice features but many aspects are still quite clunky. Handling of pdf files, working with disabilities are still problems from what I hear. Also, I find it unfathomable that the gradebook can't figure out how to fix panes and instead repeats the name column, unless this has been fixed recently.I have never heard of itYes2... would be an excellent choiceIntegration with video and document tools a plus.

Many local schools are using it. Would be good for ed majors.
I have never heard of itYes3... would be an excellent choicePros: could be inexpensive, learning/learner centered.NoYes1... would be an adequate choice

5/4/2015 12:21:02Instuctor10+Yes4... would be an excellent choiceBlackboard is a fine LMS that most of the campus is familiar with. It has an easy to use interface, can be configured to deliver classes in a simple or complex manner, and has a good mobile experience.Yes3... would be an excellent choiceCanvas appears to take the best of Blackboard and Desire2Learn and merges them together. It brings a more social experience to education, but would have a learning curve on campus just because it is something new that most have not interacted with.I have never heard of itYes4... would be an excellent choiceD2L is on par with Blackboard for its ease of use. It has not presented a good mobile experience as of yet, because that piece was extra for the College. It is externally hosted, which is both a plus and a minus as they have had outages in the recent past. It can be a bit complicated to use as it has a lot of "bells and whistles" but it is what you make out of it, meaning that you could go simple or complex with the course design.I have never heard of itI have never heard of itI have never heard of itYes2... would impede education at Elmhurst CollegeVery outdated LMS from my perspective. Granted it was over a decade ago that Elmhurst tried Moodle, but it did not receive a warm welcome. It seemed dated then, and I'm just not sure how much it has kept pace with the other LMS players.Yes1... would be an adequate choicePearson's eCollege is a powerful LMS, but I'm just not sure if it is the right fit for Elmhurst. Not sure why, just that it's not.Yes1... would impede education at Elmhurst CollegeSimilar to Moodle in that I'm not sure it's ready for prime time at Elmhurst. It is open source and while I have no direct negative opinions on open source in general, I'm just not sure if it is able to keep up with other LMS providers in being innovative. I'm also not sure how much support it still is receiving from its main project sponsors.If a new LMS is chosen a lot of faculty training will be needed in how best to use the new system.
46
5/4/2015 12:22:08Student3Yes4... would be an excellent choiceI think adjuncts do not want to learn a new technology or receive assistance. This impedes the functionality.I have never heard of itI have never heard of itI have never heard of itI have never heard of itYes2... would be an adequate choiceGoogle is not always reliable, such as when Google Mail goes down. And I believe it to be more complicated to useI have never heard of itI have never heard of itYes4... would be an excellent choiceI think available online resources are wonderful, depending on the teacher it may take away when the teachers traces on different subject matter but expects students to use online software as well.I have never heard of it
47
5/4/2015 12:22:51Student3Yes3... would be an adequate choiceI find it helpful to have all the documents and lectures available for download, however it seems like every instructor I've had gets easily confused using it.

5/4/2015 12:38:03Instuctor10Yes4... would be an adequate choiceAre there additional options available that we do not have? Maybe this option would be better if other features were made available (purchase a different license?)NoI have never heard of itNoI have never heard of itNoI have never heard of itNoNoI have never heard of itIf we change from Blackboard, which is fine with me, it is critical that the content from currently developed Blackboard classes can be easily moved into the new system.

5/4/2015 12:52:40Instuctor10+Yes5... would be an adequate choiceBlackboard is an excellent product; however, its failure to work with Internet Explorer should rule it out as a choice for EC, especially for SPS online courses where students are located throughout the country and we have virtually no control over their environment.I have never heard of itI have never heard of itYes4... is the LMS that Elmhurst College should chooseD2L supports all the features of Blackboard and includes a workflow option that Blackboard does not support. Other colleges, e.g. DePaul, have used Blackboard in the past and switched to D2L.

Elmhurst college should not give Person its money and I do not trust Pearson with my personal information as a student.I have never heard of itI have seen friends from other schools use Piazza. It looks like a great LMS and i have only heard good things. I believe EC should consider it.

5/4/2015 13:41:28Student2Yes4... would be an adequate choiceIt works pretty well when professors use it correctly. One example of when it's not excellent is as it relates to the Center for Professional Excellence.

Yes2... would be an adequate choiceYes3... is the LMS that Elmhurst College should chooseI have friends who use this at their colleges. Also, I just love the Google system overall. Docs has revolutionized the way I study and do work. So a program that integrates all the services provided by Google sounds great.

compatibility issues - limited for user's development

tech issues unresolved -

an awful choice for the college... unless we want to stay behind other colleges, and work with stressful tools that deliver limited results
Yes4... is the LMS that Elmhurst College should choosevery promising future - apps / cloud / social networking...

this a tool for innovators - adaptable, customizable ---

this is the right choice!!!
Yes4... would be an excellent choicegood apps / good cloud and communication capabilities... no IOS apps.

this is also an excellent choice - mobile with lots of resources
NoYes5... is the LMS that Elmhurst College should chooseThis an excellent open source LMS... we can customize it and add code to it,,,use other developers' designs and implement a wide range of apps, communication and applications...

many large universities (in the US and ABROAD) use a customized version of moddle..it is a great open source LSM...But please understand that open source means unlimited potential for collaborative development and it is proven to be excellent tool for online instruction in Higher Ed... I program on Moddle, and let me tell you... it is an amazing choice - growing and updating frequently to accept new apps, content, etc....and the list goes on and on..
Yes3... would be an adequate choiceit is a good choice but Pearson is a bit reluctant to accept modifications to its platform...accept content from rival companies... it would be like an arranged marriage... forced to a set of clauses and you cannot opt out... until death do us part...NoLearning tools as well as new applications that rely heavily on cloud and mobile systems (simulation/Gamification/scenario-based modules) are coming up in higher education...
An LMS is an strategic tool, not only for learning but for advancing higher education goals...
An open source LSM offers lots of benefits without the ties of a long term contract, Should the technology change in the near future we would have control to make decisions FAST..
We were stuck for years with two horrible choices and forced students to learn them (and Students never applied them in their professional lives, ever), Blackboard and D2L,,, These are bad choices because they do not reflect the future of online education...They just reflect resistance to change, even when the whole world is moving away from those obsolete LSM...
An open source LMS is adaptive, responsive, collaborative for design, customizable, proven efficient SOLUTION - LONG TERM SOLUTION

It does not work as well with some internet programs. I would be okay with Blackboard if it becomes our only LMS.I have never heard of itNoYes4... is the LMS that Elmhurst College should chooseI have been using D2L since we adopted it. I use it for an entirely online graduate course, and for a hybrid graduate course. It's a little difficult to learn to use, but it works great once you learn it. D2L is not always as "user friendly" as I would like, but it has better utlities than any LMS I know. I have never heard of itNoI have never heard of itYes3... would be an adequate choiceMoodle has some things going for it. It is probably easier to use than any LMS I know. However, it does not seem to have have as many utilities as Blackboard or D2L.I have never heard of itI have never heard of itMy personal preference is D2L, but only because it allows me to do things that I can't do (or not as easily) as any LMS. I really hope you will listen carefully to the real experts in SPS (Donna, Jen, etc.).

Its assignments are easy to check in and grade, and its social-media like format could foster discussion. It does not have grading or archive up front, so it is limited in that way.I have never heard of itNoNoI have never heard of itAn LMS that integrates well with GAFE would be a money and time saver.
