LMS Review Process

The University of Oregon is investigating enterprise wide learning management systems (LMS) to support teaching and learning.  The UO has been a Blackboard campus since 1999.  Since that time, the number of platforms, both licensed and open source, has expanded.   Our community is also more experienced in using technology to support instruction, and faculty have new requirements and expectations. The process to  determine our requirements, test various products, and select an LMS for the future will take place over the next several months.  Our current Blackboard license expires in March, 2015.


Public presentations scheduled

A request for information (RFI) has gone out to vendors, inviting them to demonstrate their products at public presentations on campus. Please mark your calendars now to attend these sessions. UO Faculty, students and staff are encouraged to attend and provide feedback to the selection committee.
