The SSU contract with WebCT was expiring. WebCT is no longer being developed or supported. Therefore, we need to move to a new learning management system. After 18 months of careful research, consideration, and consultation, Moodle was selected as the new platform.
In addition, two pilot projects (Summer-Fall 2009 & Summer-Fall 2010) with SSU faculty teaching using Moodle have yielded consistent preference for Moodle by both groups.
