Online Learning has become a fundamental element of an organisation’s educational strategy which in turn is enabled by the underlying IT strategy. A typical IT strategy will be made up of many elements including architecture, applications portfolio, and service catalogue. Of increasing importance is the consideration and development of a “sourcing” sub-strategy for IT provision.
Leigh Stevenson from Griffith University will share information about the managed hosting of online learning by Blackboard. Leigh will discuss how his team went through the initial evaluation; what were the drivers and challenges within their self hosted environment, to the migration and production process where he will talk about what was involved, their testing cycles, student perceptions, performance and support provided by Blackboard.
