University to implement Moodle by end of year

Writing about web page http://media.www.lsureveille.com/media/storage/paper868/news/2008/04/22/News/University.To.Implement.Moodle.By.End.Of.Year-3340227.shtml

So Louisiana State University are switching VLE; The Daily Reveille puts forward some interesting perspectives on the switch…

One user is quoted as describing the transition from Blackboard and Semester book to Moodle as

like switching from a Lexus to a stock car

another said…

it is like having your files dumped on the floor, and then you a have to reorganize them

whereas their ‘informational technology planning and communications officer’ says

Personally, I think of Moodle as a James Bond car – we just haven’t put in the leather interior and jet seats yet… but they are coming.

and…

The faculty has to learn a new way of doing something – and everyone hates that… but I have confidence that two years from now, we will be comfortable with the new way of doing things.

The University decided the switch to Moodle was necessary because of financial reasons.
