Angel vs Moodle vs Sakai vs Blackboard – which LMS? « Juliaitani’s Blog Talking about Learning Management System (LMS) or Content Management System (CMS) in higher education is a bit of a hit in a glass wall. You see where you want to go but for some reason you can’t reach a common point. Many popular LMS / CMS today offer what it seems to be a similar gamut of features and tools. EduTools does a great job by letting you select which LMS vendor you’d like to compare and finally produces a comparison spreadsheet The Instructional Technology Council (ITC) published a survey on elearning at Community Colleges page demonstrating WebCT and Blackboard still leading stats in LMS costumers in 2007. There are two levels of expectations that I believe at some point they coincide but at many other instances they grow apart greatly.

Random Wikipedia subject discovery Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is a potentially life-threatening complication in people with diabetes mellitus. It happens predominantly in those with type 1 diabetes, but it can occur in those with type 2 diabetes under certain circumstances. DKA results from a shortage of insulin; in response the body switches to burning fatty acids and producing acidic ketone bodies that cause most of the symptoms and complications. DKA may be the first symptom of previously undiagnosed diabetes, but it may also occur in people known to have diabetes as a result of a variety of causes, such as intercurrent illness or poor compliance with insulin therapy. Vomiting, dehydration, deep gasping breathing, confusion and occasionally coma are typical symptoms. DKA is diagnosed with blood and urine tests; it is distinguished from other, rarer forms of ketoacidosis by the presence of high blood sugar levels. DKA is a medical emergency, and without treatment it can lead to death. Signs and symptoms
LMS Selection You should prepare your RFP based upon your requirements. It is not necessary to indicate priorities of requirements, nor list them in any specific order, in the RFP itself so that each requirement is responded to equally. You should try to be as specific as possible about each requirement so that the LMS company can respond directly to your requirement rather than provide a general response. You should also include scenarios in your RFP. You also will need to request a proposed project plan for implementation based upon your criteria. Finally, provide a short response time for the RFP.

Unfortunately, that isn’t always so easy: Cell signals and land lines can be jammed with the massive amount of calls flowing in and out of an area. Here are some of the best tips we know for getting in touch, but this is by no means a complete list. Don’t call. Additional tips: Use a battery case for your smartphone–that thing can’t make it through a whole day when it’s not constantly scanning for a signal. Also, be sure to keep your emergency contact list up to date. Again, please share your tips in the comments below.
CMS: How To Use This Site about good practices and sound policies that accelerate the effective adoption and use of technologies in teaching and learning. For more than a decade, WCET's EduTools website was a leading destination for educational technology decision makers. The independent reviews and side-by-side comparisons of educational technology products were used by colleges and universities of all sizes, higher education systems and other multi-campus service providers to expedite and streamline their internal processes for the review and evaluation of products, saving them time and duplicative effort. EduTools was best known for its CMS/LMS comparative reviews and a detailed matrix of CMS/LMS features and criteria. EduTools Matrix Many visitors to EduTools used the detailed matrix of LMS/CMS features, descriptions, and criteria as a tool in developing requests for proposals and evaluation requirements. EduTools was launched in 2001 with funding support from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.
