There are a number of exciting changes that have been made to NC State’s Learning Management Systems (LMSs) over the last six months, as well as some updates on where we as a campus are heading with enterprise learning technologies that we would like to share with you via this post. Rather than create one long post, we’ve broken down the developments in our LMS efforts into 5 different categories. Please explore and learn a little bit about what we are doing, where we are headed and how you can participate in shaping the direction and functionality of the LMS here at NC State.

Feature Requests and Bug Fixes: There is a feature request and bug reporting system in place to enable you to provide input into what your needs are with respect to the LMS. The system is open to anyone in the NC State community to submit requests and view progress on requests already submitted.

Development and System Updates: Learn more about changes to Moodle, Elluminate, WolfWare toolbox and system administration details.

Moodle 2 Updates: We are currently running a version of Moodle 1.9. A team has been formed to plan our upgrade to Moodle 2.x. Find out where we are in the process.

Migration from Blackboard Vista to Moodle: A recap of our migration efforts.

LMS Committee Updates: Information about the LMS governance structure and what they have been working on for the past year.
