“Implementing an LMS” Please respond to the following:
Every LMS has its own set of benefits and drawbacks. Many are designed specifically for education, while others are more geared toward delivering and tracking corporate training. Even the most robust LMS may be missing a way to incorporate assets that your organization needs to enhance or augment the learner experience.
· Using the same scenario from the Week 2 discussion, provide a brief outline of the kinds of assets that your organization needs. Next, determine at least two (2) potential technical issues for the implementation of the LMS that you have selected for your organization. Explain your rationale.
This my week 2 Discussion Question
Evaluating an LMS” Please respond to the following:
Choosing an LMS for an organization can be a daunting experience. There are many variables that need to be taken into account when weighing all of the options. Select one (1) organization of your choice and imagine that you are choosing an LMS for the organization. In thinking about the strategy that will provide the best information to make a decision:
· Describe what your selected organization is about (e.g., size, industry, main business, etc.)
· Outline the main process that you would use to narrow the search to two (2) different LMSs. Provide a brief explanation of why you chose this approach.
· Determine the key elements that are the most important for your LMS choice. Explain the rationale for your response.
This is my response for DQ2
Institutions may use a particular LMS software to plan, implement, facilitate, assess, and monitor student learning (Weiss, 2013). The software in most cases helps in course preparation, educational content and resources. LMS can also aid in the delivery and tracking of student activities, such as discussion and collaboration (Weiss, 2013). The organization that I have chosen is a K-2 school. This size of the K-2 school is large and services 720 students with at least fifty faculty members that will use the LMS. The process of selecting an LMS will be formed by taking many considerations into thought such as the institution’s culture. There are other aspects such as choosing the right people to sit on the selection committee; establishing an effective, efficient and transparent selection process; and setting criteria for the LMS that are fitting with the school’s strategic directions and the teaching and learning processes it wants to support. Narrowing the selection down to two LMS would entail focuses on the needs, cost and efficiency of the selections. Determining the key elements that would be most important in the LMS chose would include whether it facilitate instruction and specific learning activities, offers collaborative activities, allows for assessment on student achievement level, records student data, cost and its accessibility features making certain that it address the principle of reasonable access and compliance with current accessibility laws.
