Learners must be able to access the LMS and its content in their native language.The ability for accessing content in native languages grows in importance as we serve a more diverse student and also faculty.George KanieskiThis doesn't make any sense to me, given that the content is going to be written in English unless the student is enrolled in a foreign langauge course specifically. --George KanieskiEven though I teach ESL, the language of instruction is English. The LMS should be in English so that we can promote the practice of the language even with students whose first language is not English. -- Matt Pierce

The system administrator must be able to configure permissions and span of control for various learning administrator groups so that enterprise administrators can manage enterprise-wide content, while local administrators work autonomously on localized content delivered in local time zones to local target audiences.The ability to assign local administrators to control localized content.

The LMS must be easily scalable to handle increasing numbers of users and content to keep in step with the growth of the organization.Online and blended learning will contnue to grow and therefore can the hosted solution support Tri-C user growth
12
The LMS must provide cost-effective licensing options for the anticipated number of users in your organization.Licensing optionsI'm concerned about this one. At the origin of this project and its communication to faculty (specifically when representatives from eLi shared at a Western Campus faculty senate meeting), the question of whether or not this LMS decision would be tied to cost came up, and the answer I took away was that an LMS would be chosen based on the needs of faculty and students. But here, and on our June 3rd meeting, there has been mention of eliminating LMSs that were too expensive. While we want to be good stewards of the College's money, I don't think we should be basing our needs analysis, even in part, on licensing costs. --Mike Piero

When they graduate, their profolios can be accessible for their job searches. -- Matt Pierce
