Regarding LMS Migration as a Golden Opportunity: Rutgers Arts Online’s Experience

Speaker(s): 
Ruqqayya Maudoodi, Richard Metzger
Presentation Description: 

Migrating from one LMS to another can be a division or department’s worst nightmare, or it can be a golden opportunity to dramatically improve the standards of your course offerings. RAO took the latter tack and used the migration as the means to bring the courses into conformity through universal design, address ADA compliance issues, eliminate ‘legacy’ technical issues, and replace ancillary software by using the features of the new LMS. The undertaking also gave us the opportunity to build even stronger community/team spirit with our instructors.
