What are key factors for a successful transition from Blackboard (or another LMS) to Sakai CLE? This presentation will examine NYU’s transition to Sakai CLE and the factors that have proven most important to us in ensuring a smooth rollout.
University IT teams planning a migration to Sakai may be asking questions such as:
- How much time should we invest in online vs in-person training?
- How do we most effectively communicate with our users?
- How can we ensure buy-in from stakeholders?
- What are the challenges associated with migrating content from Blackboard to Sakai?
We will examine the different components of our transition, including a data-driven analysis of the effectiveness of our efforts.This session is ideal for institutions planning to make the move to Sakai. We will also have an extended question/discussion period, which will provide the opportunity for other schools and organizations who have gone through this transition to share what has (or has not) worked well for them.
