Canterbury University (New Zealand) has just announced that they will be ditching Blackboard for Moodle and have started the shift process for full adoption by the start of 2010.
Canterbury University implemented a steering group which recommended Moodle be trialled against their current Blackboard CMS. The steering group’s final decision based process had these criteria:
- Usability (by teachers and students)
- Operational (reliability, external support, features and flexibility)
- Strategic (future proofing, adaptation, stability of provider)
- Cost (transition and long term)
