#bbworld09 Considerations for LMS PowerLinks

Campus-wide needs campus-wide funding.

Can we support and administer?

Licensing? Who owns it? Who is contact person?

Performance effect on the LMS?

Interactions with established powerlinks?

What infrastructure needs does it need? (Tegrity and TurningTech clickers required infrastructure changes. They also don’t play well together in same course).

LMS version upgrades requires further testing of powerlinks.

Often support of these 3rd party tools is distributed across various campus entities.

Determining ROI involves reporting on usage, but also how does it impact teaching and learning?

Demonstrating that X tool improves the learning outcome for a course is the next measure we need to have.
