TCC08: Transitioning from WebCT to Sakai

Experiencing eLearning

I Need Somebody: Faculty Perspectives on Transitioning from WebCT to a Sakai-based Learning Management System,&# by Ariana Eichelberger, Educational Technology, University of Hawaii at Manoa. Comfortable with WebCT and hesitant to switch. They are currently in transition, but WebCT will be going away soon. Questions: She mentioned how Sakai can be changed when the universities want it to happen rather than when WebCT decides it will happen.

consolidation continues - BlackBoard + WebCT & more.

The Learning Circuits

Today BlackBoard announced plans to merge with WebCT; the two leading providers in the higher education eLearning space (BlackBoard alone forecasts US$150M+ for their fiscal year). It also doesn't bode well for WebCT's willingness to play with open source (sorry Harold!) Wow, consolidation is running rampart in the eLearning space as everyone continues to merge or acquire. Look to your left and look to your right; easily one of those will not be around in six months.

Survey: Blackboard (Still) Rules Higher Ed

LearnDash

But then there is WebCT rounding out third… funny thing is, since this survey was originally conducted (2012), WebCT has been bought out by Blackboard. It is now becoming common practice for higher education institutions to utilize elearning in some capacity.

My History of Live Blogged Notes

Experiencing eLearning

Transitioning from WebCT to Sakai. When I attend webinars or participate in online courses and conferences, I usually live blog my notes. That helps me remember what I attended and what I learned, and it lets me share that knowledge with others.

How our learning theories shape how we use technology for learning

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

I read a paper called Perspectives on learning and technology: A review of theoretical perspectives "This paper provides a review of literature pertaining to theoretical references on educational practice and technology from perspectives of learning theories of the 20th and 21st centuries."

If it wasn’t for modern sanitation we wouldn’t have online learning!

Coffee and Design

Those past inventions, e.g., Blackboard, eCollege, WebCT, etc. I came across an article that almost a year old in the Economist Magazine the other day which discusses some trends and issues with something I have been particularly interested in lately, “innovation.”

eLearning 24-7

That is like calling Blackboard, WebCT, since they bought them more than 15 years ago. It’s nearly here. In a little over two months, my 2016 Top 50 LMS Report will be available for purchase. This post isn’t so much a “buy, buy”, rather it is to give insight into the process, considerations, and factors. Not everyone gets in. And yeah there are vendors who will taut that they are in X list or Y rankings and thus should be included.

Keeping Up - April's Big Question

eLearning Cyclops

April's Big Question from Learning Circuits is "How to Keep up?" This is in reference the immense and rapidly expanding technology tools. It is tough to stay on top of all the emerging tools. However, being involved in an e-learning community is a big help. For me it is a blog community and following many experts on Twitter. Not only am I often made aware of new tools, but also get opinions, tips, and examples of their use.

Online Learning in Education

Popular ones included Lotus Notes, Blackboard and WebCT. In 1993, Jones International made its debut on the internet. The first 100% online university. In 1999, Jones International became the first online university in the U.S. to be accredited by the Higher Learning Commission. By 1999, other online universities were on the scene including the University of Phoenix and Western Governors University which was a consortium of small colleges in the rocky mountain area.

Is there anything Moodle can't do?

Clive on Learning

My question is, what am I not getting that I would with Blackboard, WebCT, FirstClass and other VLEs? Over the past two months I've been working extensively with the open source virtual learning environment (VLE) Moodle. I've been using it in three ways: To provide support for a predominantly classroom-based course (pre and post course activities, forums, wiki, etc.). To support a predominantly online course in the usual way.

The VLE (Moodle, Blackboard, WebCT), on the other hand, is a tool for colleges, training providers and others who want to deliver (or at least support the delivery) of learning interventions online. Yesterday eLearning Guild announced their Member's Choice Awards for Learning Management Systems (LMS).

e-Learning Acupuncture: Wiki uses at Universities

The addition of a student-to-student, and/or student-to-instructor, collaborative tool such as a wiki would complement very well the WebCT and DNDLearn LMS functionalities currently at RMC, especially if it is compatible with the PWGSC DWAN firewall. skip to main | skip to sidebar e-Learning Acupuncture Erics ramblings, experiences and random thoughts about e-Learning, distance education and Educational Technology.
