University selects Learning Management System

The university is currently involved in a tender procedure for the selection of a Learning Management System (LMS). Our current LMS is Blackboard.

Requirements

The university has drafted a Statement of Requirements (Programma van Eisen en Wensen) with input from all Leiden faculties. The tenders will be assessed by a multidisciplinary team.

Student participants wanted

We will assess the usability of the various LMS systems. The user tests will be conducted by teaching staff, students, and coordinators. We are still looking for more student participants. Are you a student and are you willing to join one of the teams? Please contact the project group LMS before 1 November 2017 via lmsproject@bb.leidenuniv.nl.

Selection and implementation

The outcomes of the multidisciplinary team and the usability tests will result in a ranking of suppliers and systems. We will most probably select an LMS by March 2018 and soon after that, we will start the implementation process. It is likely that we will start working in the new system as of September 2019.
