Selecting Course Management Software to Meet the Requirements of Faculty and Students

Tuesday, April 16, 2002

Abstract

Many institutions are making the decision to adopt a course management system. But which one, and based on what criteria? This Research Bulletin describes a methodology for selecting a course management system. Research has highlighted the importance of going beyond a list of features and functions to engaging both faculty and students in the review process. Ease of use and time to complete tasks are important variables, as are faculty and student rankings of the importance of specific features. Five steps are suggested for institutions that intend to select a course management system.
