This will be a panel (of one) discussion about the challenges and rewards of making an open source LMS the university’s enterprise LMS. I’ll share the dilemmas and the rewards of dealing with early adopters, non- adopters, skeptical administrators, realizing a true cost savings, integrating with other enterprise systems, and generating enthusiasm versus managing expectations. Bring your questions and concerns and we will share mistakes and successes so other open source enthusiasts can find even greater success in their efforts.

This session will explore a model, called agentive valuation, to describe how the agency of various stakeholders shapes the successful integration of technology. Agentive valuation entails different implementation strategies and cross-disciplinary research efforts much like HCI. Read the rest of this entry »
