BLACKBOARD TO STAY

After Bridgewater State University faculty members raised concerns about switching from Blackboard to Moodle,  the university has decided to suspend the transition from Blackboard to Moodle for the rest of the academic year.

 

One of the main reasons for the suspension in transition is to allow more research to be conducted to discover what learning management system works best.

 

In an email sent out to faculty, librarians and visiting lecturers, Howard London, Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs, said Bridgewater State will form a committee of faculty members to evaluate both learning systems commonly used by other higher education institutions.

 

London also said the committee will make a recommendation of whether to use Blackboard or Moodle that will be implemented in the fall of 2014.

 

“We acknowledge that while this change in course will be welcomed by some, it will be upsetting to those who have invested considerable time in learning their favored platform,” said London in his email.
