In May 2010, the Office of Information Technology (OIT) announced to the University that Moodle would become the sole Course Management System (CMS). At that time, WebVista course sections outnumbered those in Moodle. Since the announcement, Moodle use has continued to increase such that by September, Moodle course sections outnumbered WebVista course sections.
In order to help the University through this challenging transition process, OIT will partner with campus leaders and form governance groups for input and advice. These groups will include the CMS steering committee, comprised of administrators; the Academic Technology Advisory Committee (ATAC), comprised of administrators, faculty members, and academic technologists; and the CMS Implementation Group, formerly University Technology Enhanced Learning Leaders (UTELL), comprised primarily of academic and nonacademic operational staff members. These groups will act as liaisons to their colleges and units to bring forward concerns and requests and to take back critical information regarding the transition and the upcoming Moodle upgrade.
