The three LMS vendor finalists – Canvas (Instructure), Brightspace (D2L) and Blackboard Ultra (Anthology) – presented on campus May 8-10. Recordings are now available. Please complete the feedback survey after viewing presentations. Mason login required.
In addition, vendors will provide demo courses faculty can explore to get a more hands-on experience and provide additional feedback to the selection committee. Look for an email and follow-up post soon with signup details.
Based on all the feedback we have collected, we expect to have a decision on a replacement LMS within the next few months and will share it widely on Mason’s communication channels. After a platform is selected, we understand there is much work to be done. There will be a transition period for faculty with an emphasis on faculty development and automated course conversions. More details will be provided in the coming months.
