3 INTRODUCTION As part of its efforts in researching strategies, the Florida Task Force on Postsecondary Online Education s Technology and Data Issues Committee requested the assistance of institutions within the public university and college systems, as well as the private, independent universities and colleges. The Committee used this survey to collect information on the current and projected use of Learning Management Systems (LMSs) by Florida institutions to deliver online courses. These responses are important in developing strategies and recommendations because it will assist the Committee in creating a complete picture of the current state of LMS adoption and use in Florida. The results of the survey will be used to determine the desirability and feasibility of working toward a common LMS platform for Florida colleges and universities. The survey had eight questions including both open-tet and multiple-choice formats. The participating institutions responses are included in the pages that follow, as well as a complete analysis that details trends found throughout the survey responses. Board of Governors Page 2

24 5. If the State of Florida provided to your institution a central, shared learning management system at no cost, would your institution use it? Analysis Of the 37 institutions that responded to this question, 41% (15) institutions would use a stateprovided LMS, while 46% (17) institutions would use a state-provided LMS, if it were the same as their current brand. Please note institutions were only allowed to provide one response to this question. No, If it was the same brand our institution is currently using Universities 2 6 Colleges ICUF Other 1 1 Totals Detailed Data No, If it was the same brand our institution is currently using Florida Public Universities Florida Gulf Coast University Florida International University Florida State University Provided FGCUs ability to use and customize the LMS was the same or enhanced. The challenge would be around special processes our university follows and if we would be allowed the same functionality and access we currently have. Eample would be the ability to cross list courses, manage dynamic start and end dates. Board of Governors Page 9

25 No, If it was the same brand our institution is currently using New College of Florida It depends on the system, compleity, and implementation costs. 'No Cost' I assume is in regard to the license. There is still a cost in terms of switching and managing the system. University of Central Florida University of Florida University of North Florida University of South Florida University of West Florida Subtotal We just migrated less than a year ago (we are still migrating), so we are not looking to make a change in the near to midterm. For both #5 & #6 yes, provided it net the epressed needs of our faculty users. Ascertained through faculty review teams. Hard to say yes or no to this. It would depend on how much we would be able to customize for our institution's needs. That is assuming that the costs of managing internal tools that tie to USF Business Systems are included. I do not foresee a true 'no cost' solution. Sity percent of USF students take at least one online class a year and we would have to apply our tools to work with the online system. Additional concern is who and how do we support (Help Desk, Training) two systems. Although similar, there will be differences that will affect a large part of the student body. Depends upon the factors identified in #7 below. College of Central Florida Florida Public Colleges We would migrate to a shared system provided it was a widely adopted system and we were given adequate time to make the transition. Board of Governors Page 10

26 No, If it was the same brand our institution is currently using Daytona State College, if some or all of these criteria are fulfilled: faculty approval; preservation of analytics and learning outcomes data; 99.9% uptime or greater; improved security measures; consistent and optimal user eperience (limited to no sluggishness); 508 compliance; ERP integration so enrollments and other functions are automated; highly configurable to support mini- semesters/6-week/8-week/12-week/16- week terms and open enrollment options; learning outcome assessment and reporting at the section, course, program and institutional levels; assistance with migration of courses and learning materials; and the ability to create individual student learning plans. Eastern Florida State College It would depend on the cost savings and the need to training and rebranding Edison State College We would have to work with our faculty senate to move if another platform was chosen. Florida Gateway College Florida State College at Jacksonville Only with the ability for etensive customization options, for D, military, veterans, career tech, etc. Hillsborough Community College Indian River State College Lake Sumter State College yes, depending on other details Miami Dade College Palm Beach State College Need an adequate system and adequate phase in/course convert time. Board of Governors Page 11

27 No, If it was the same brand our institution is currently using Pasco- Hernando Community College We are in the process of switching over the Canvas now and have a three-year contract with Instructure for this LMS. We have invested a lot of time and effort into training our faculty on how to use this new system. Our faculty and students voted to have this new system and seem to enjoy the benefits of having a more modern LMS. We would consider switching after our time was up and only if faculty and students were involved in the discussion on why we would need to switch. Polk State College There are many factors involved in a decision surrounding the use of a shared LMS at our institution. We would want faculty approval as well as the same and/or additional features available in our current LMS. Santa Fe College Heavily dependent on the time frame for implementation. We are contractually bound for two more years to our current LMS. Seminole State College The current model and LMS environment at SSC is one that is well aligned and tailored to its mission and needs. Agile customization is best serving the needs of SSC s students and faculty. St. Johns River State College There are too many unanswered questions to indicate whether we would support either scenario. St. Petersburg College We are in the evaluation process for a product. We would not wish for the State to use Angel, but whatever we chose. State College of Florida, Manatee- Sarasota Valencia College It would depend on what was chosen and whether the software/system selected met our institutional needs and objectives. Board of Governors Page 12

28 No, If it was the same brand our institution is currently using Subtotal ICUF Institutions Barry University Bethune Cookman University Eckerd College Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Florida Institute of Technology Lynn University Rollins College Southeastern University The University of Tampa Subtotal It depends on what it looks like, what it does, how it is managed, how it is supported, how easy it is to use. It would be less work on faculty and administration to use the same LMS. It would be very epensive and time consuming to retrain our faculty and staff on a new system. Florida Tech would be interested in considering the option. It would require faculty endorsement and a review of the cost to move platforms. This is assuming the LMS offers the same feature set as used currently and required by campus. We would be open to it if we were able to tie it to our ERP. We might use it. Whether we adopted it would depend on whether our faculty determined it was comparable to or better than the system we presently use. While UT does not offer online courses at this time, we do use a LMS (Blackboard) to teach hybrid courses that include online learning. To answer this questions completely:, if it was the same brand our institution is currently using and the issues listed in response to question #7 were resolved to our satisfaction.

29 No, If it was the same brand our institution is currently using FLVC St. Andrews University Subtotal Total Board of Governors Page 14

30 6. If the State of Florida provided to your institution a central, shared learning management system using a cost sharing model, would your institution use it? Analysis Of the 36 institutions that responded to this question, 42% (15) institutions would use a stateprovided LMS using a cost-sharing model, while the same number, 42% (15) institutions would use a cost sharing model if it was the same brand their institutions was currently using. Please note that institutions were only allowed to provide one response to this question. No, If it was the same brand our institution is currently using Universities Colleges ICUF Other Totals Detail Data No, If it was the same brand our institution is currently using Florida Public Universities Florida Gulf Coast University Provided FGCUs licensing fee was not increased with the costsharing model. Florida International University Florida State University New College of Florida Maybe is the real answer. It depends in this case on what the cost is. We are a small institution and it is not clear that a costsharing model would be lower cost than what we are currently paying. Board of Governors Page 15

31 University of Central Florida University of Florida University of North Florida University of South Florida University of West Florida Subtotal We just migrated less than a year ago (we are still migrating), so we are not looking to make a change in the near to midterm. Same as above. It is an idea worth eploring, but the system would need to be fleible enough to support different configurations for different institutions. As an eample, we have building blocks that have been developed here to meet our needs that would need to be supported or replaced, not to mention clicker blocks and other integrations whose functionality would need to be replicated or migrated into a central system. Only if it does not add the cost of running our normal LMS. Same issues apply otherwise. This will be a problem in that we pay 8.82 per FTE and 90% of the students take a F2F course. Yet 60% take an online course. How will we work out a license that covers our cost for both LMSs? Depends upon the factors identified in #7 below. Florida Public Colleges College of Central Florida, provided the cost-sharing model actually saves us money over what we have independently negotiated with our LMS provider. Board of Governors Page 16

32 Daytona State College Eastern Florida State College Edison State College Florida Gateway College Florida State College at Jacksonville Hillsborough Community College Indian River State College Lake Sumter State College Miami Dade College Palm Beach State College Again, it would depend on if some or all of these criteria are met or offered: faculty approval; preservation of analytics and learning outcomes data; 99.9% uptime or greater; improved security measures; consistent and optimal user eperience (limited to no sluggishness); 508 compliance; ERP integration so enrollments and other functions are automated; highly configurable to support mini-semesters/6-week/8- week/12-week/16-week terms and open enrollment options; learning outcome assessment and reporting at the section, course, program and institutional levels; assistance with migration of courses and learning materials; and the ability to create individual student learning plans. We would have to work with our faculty senate to move if another platform was chosen. As long as it provided a cost savings substantial enough to change systems. yes, depending on other details Need an adequate system and adequate phase in/course convert time. Board of Governors Page 17

33 Pasco- Hernando Community College Pensacola State College Polk State College Santa Fe College Seminole State College St. Johns River State College St. Petersburg College State College of Florida, Manatee- Sarasota Tallahassee Community College We would need to see significant cost savings in order to make the switch to another LMS since we are in the process of making a switch now. Probably, but we would need more details to provide a definitive answer. There are many factors involved in a decision surrounding the use of a shared LMS at our institution. We would want faculty approval as well as the same and/or additional features available in our current LMS. Of course, cost also plays a role in the decision to join a costsharing model. As mentioned in item #5, the implementation time line is of critical importance. Additionally, we would hope an economy of scale would also occur with savings to the institution. The current model and LMS environment at SSC is one that is well aligned and tailored to its mission and needs. Agile customization is best serving the needs of SSC s students and faculty. There are too many unanswered questions to indicate whether we would support either scenario. It would depend on the cost. If 'Maybe' was a choice, I would choose it. Board of Governors Page 18

34 Valencia College Subtotal It would depend on what was chosen and whether the software/system selected met our institutional needs and objectives. Barry University Bethune Cookman University Clearwater Christian College Eckerd College Embry- Riddle Aeronautical University Florida Institute of Technology Lynn University Rollins College Saint Leo University Southeastern University ICUF Institutions It depends on what it looks like, what it does, how it is managed, how it is supported, how easy it is to use. I believe a cost-sharing model will reduce the price of LMS. The same requirements noted in number 5 would need to be met and the overall cost would need to be a reduction to the current level of epense to justify the platform switch. Again if it makes sense from a cost saving perspective and if we were able to tie it to our ERP We might use it. Whether we adopted it would depend on whether our faculty determined it was comparable to or better than the system we presently use. The higher the cost, the more the system would have to be a significant improvement over our present system. Board of Governors Page 19

35 The University of Tampa, if it was the same brand our institution is currently using, issues listed in question #7 were satisfactorily resolved, and the cost made business sense (<= current costs). Also, future cost controls would need to be factored in. Subtotal FLVC St. Andrews University Other Subtotal Total Board of Governors Page 20

36 7. Please list any specific factors that would hinder your institution from participating in a shared, statewide learning management system: Florida Public Universities Florida Gulf Coast University Florida International University Florida State University We recently completed the transition to Canvas LMS and find that it meets the needs of FGCU faculty and the students find it simple to use. Switching to another LMS now or in the near future would be a burden to the FGCU faculty, students, and LMS support staff. It is not clear if you are describing one installation of the shared LMS that every institution has sub-accounts with, or the separate installations of the same LMS. One installation with sub-accounts generates the following concerns: There may be issues with user accounts. There may be issues with setting system level rules or activating system level resources in that not all institutions want the same settings. Would require an LMS administrator at the institutional level to have the ability to make changes as needed. Support infrastructure with an LMS like Canvas that has a ticketing system will need to be carefully planned. We would need a separate test instance. Some LMS systems limit customizations such as global navigation to a single JavaScript file. This would be problematic if all institutions shared one installation. Timing of course uploads to the LMS may be problematic. There may be issues accommodating each institution's account creation needs, for eample, we provide every faculty with a sandbo for testing and use during training. Our training is structured on this happening. Institutional ing within the LMS. Concerns about speed in which state would adopt new service packs that provide new functionality. The ability for an institution to have single sign on and integration to systems they use or would like to use. Eample would be ability to deploy blackboard building blocks. Our infrastructure investment over 15 years and faculty/student/staff adoption of Blackboard make it unlikely that we would use an alternative system even at no licensing cost. Licensing cost is a fraction of overall cost of an LMS and the associated infrastructure, support and training. New College of Florida Cost of package (if shared). Switching Cost (if paid for by the state or shared). Applicability to our institution. University of Central Florida University of Florida Timing could be a factor. We might consider switching to a new LMS platform but not in the near to mid-term (because we recently completed a migration to a new system). Obviously, devil is in the details. However, we are user oriented and it is in that domain approval must be had. It will support whatever they want, Board of Governors Page 21
