**This message is specifically for Tri-C faculty.**
We’d like to invite you to take part in our review of the college’s Learning Management System (LMS) by exploring or “sandboxing” . Currently, we use Blackboard, but a lot has changed in the nearly two decades we’ve been using Blackboard, so we’re considering the many options now available (including Blackboard, of course).
What would I have to do?
We want you to test, or sandbox, the Learning Management Systems under review. That will mean using the LMSs as faculty, as students, as someone who wants to learn how and how well each LMS does what you need it to do.
Will I be compensated?
Excellent question. A full-time faculty member can receive two (2) service credits under 4.06: Bb Faculty Advance Preview Group. As a participant in sandboxes (“fake” test courses) for each LMS, faculty will:
- assess functionality
- fill out rubrics as part of assessing that functionality
- connect with and discuss the potential LMSs with colleagues
An adjunct faculty member can receive three (3) stipend credits. Contact Andy Pegman to confirm participation.
Sounds great. What do I need to do so I can play in a sandbox?
Respond to the person who contacted you. If you reply by email, please copy Pat Stansberry at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’d like to know more. Where can I get a big picture view of the project?
