description

Steve Pallett, Flexible Learning Technologies Officer and Adam Barbary, Systems Analyst/Trainer, Ballarat University The University of Ballarat is in the middle of a transition to Moodle from Blackboard CE8. The transition to Moodle is taking place over 2010 with Blackboard to be switched off at the end of Semester 2, 2010. We are running two Moodel production instances, one for TAFE and one for Higher Education. It has been a ‘smell of an oily rag’ project with all the challenges that entails. Steve will speak about the LMS evaluation process, selection of a system and the early implementation issues. Adam will talk about the integration of our Moodle instances with Campus Solutions (HE Students Systems) and APTUS (TAFE Student System) and the training program being delivered to teaching staff.
