Since we all can't win the lottery - demo's are today!

October 12, 2021


Executive summary:  Yes, the vendor presentations for both Canvas and D2L will be recorded, see below in Red for details à Lesson learned, I should have led with that statement yesterday.   

Schedules are so busy and we realize that many of you have class or prior commitments so recording is a must.  Please look for a survey to be distributed to campus this Thursday for feedback about the demos...

In case you are wondering, the evaluation criteria to be used by the selection committee to make a recommendation is below.  The recommendation will be presented to the Faculty Development and Educational Technology committees for the next LMS decision.
