A new learning management system for the university was recently approved by the University Education Infrastructure Committee. The popular and versatile Moodle was selected as a system that best meets the needs of MUSC faculty, staff and students. The decision was made following a thorough review and evaluation by a committee composed of representatives from each college.
This system will be hosted by MoodleRooms http://www.moodlerooms.com/. The ability for Moodlerooms to integrate with our student management system (Datatel's Colleague) along with its demonstrated ability to meet all other requirements specified in the Request for Proposal (e.g., robust quiz features including statistical analysis of scores, easy-to-use discussion board, training and migration support, etc.), made it the top choice by the evaluation committee.
Stan Sulkowski and Mary Mauldin are leading an implementation committee composed of representatives from each college throughout spring semester 2011. Plans for training and migration of courses from WebCT and Blackboard are being developed by each college representative on the implementation committee. The committee's goal is to provide maximum support to each college as the institution moves from WebCT and Blackboard to Moodle by June 30.
