Overview – EDUC 767

Getting faculty to use the Colgate-sponsored LMS, Moodle can be a struggle. The latest data from the Spring 2019 report shows about 60% of our faculty use Moodle but we would like to increase the usage. It’s important that faculty adopt our learning management system for several reasons and students want all their classes to be visible on Moodle. (In a 2015 ECAR study, 56% of college students said they wished instructors would use an LMS.) For Colgate faculty, however, adopting the LMS has been easier said than done. Some of the common challenges that deter them from LMS adoption are lack of time, resistance to adopting new technologies, lack of training opportunities, and lack of support. This RLO will serve as training on the Google Course Kit plug-in for Moodle.
