 We know everyone is very busy, but we really need your input on our next LMS.  This is a friendly reminder that the Canvas and D2L vendor demos are posted and waiting for you to review (see links below).  Your feedback from the survey is critical to our selection process and the new deadline is November 1st

 Thanks in advance for your help.

Subject: Stream the LMS demos this break!

 Happy Friday,

 I hope everyone is getting a much needed break!  If you are looking for some great viewing material, you are in luck as the LMS demos are now available.  The video demos from both Canvas and D2L are located in the Sakai “teaching online site” as well as links TO the Sakai site FROM the LMS transition website https://www.stlawu.edu/offices/information-technology/lms-transition-project

 We want to hear from campus and the selection committee will need your input to make the best decision for St. Lawrence.  Please, once you have watched both videos take a moment and fill out the survey https://stlawu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_2fnQCQjXV9gsyMK      deadline is October 25. 

 I was personally excited about the material both vendors showcased.  It’s exciting to see so many options such as accessibility check, chosen name, calendar integration as well as things that are done by hand now, automated.

 Enjoy the weekend and go team SLU!

 Smiles and laughter,
