Yup… but not to panic. We’ve known for a while that the state’s contract for the Angel Learning Management System (LMS) ends at the end of spring quarter 2014. Add to that the fact that Blackboard recently bought Angel… and now Providence Equity Partners has purchased Blackboard… beginning summer 2014 we’ll be on a different LMS.
BUT – in the meantime, all of us in the Washington State community college system will be working toward acquiring a new LMS. We’ll be migrating to this new LMS well before summer of 2014 – so no worries!
We’ll be seeking YOUR input for the RFP process.
And you can bet, there will be lots of training opportunities and as much help as we in eLearning can provide!
