Moving to Moodle

Interesting case study in Educause on change management (now occupying my work time)- transitioning from a home grown LMS to Moodle. The author doesn’t dwell on the reason for the changes, however the lessons learnt are carefully noted.  While not explicitly stated, the paper seems to indicate that implementing an open source application might require more support than a commercial counterpart. An interesting finding was the usefulness of ‘just in time’ training supports. Pity there was not more analysis of the role of change agents in the paper.
