The MyLO 2012 LMS Project was established to implement the selected replacement Learning Management System (LMS) for the University of Tasmania (UTAS). In stages one and two of the project a comprehensive program of research, consultations and evaluations around three potential replacements led to the endorsement of Desire2Learn (D2L) as the replacement system by University Council.
In stage three, the implementation of D2L at UTAS will support Technology Enhanced Learning and Teaching (TELT) by providing a core online learning and teaching environment that is robust, reliable and intuitive to use, and that integrates seamlessly with current services. The new LMS will be adaptable, facilitating a full range of learning and teaching approaches, disciplines and contexts, and will offer scope to support external partnerships. The system will evolve as new learning and teaching needs and opportunities arise.
Since University Council approved the original project, the strategic learning and teaching environment has evolved in ways that necessarily have impact upon the context in which the LMS will be implemented. The Deputy Vice Chancellor (Students and Education), Professor David Sadler, has led the development of a renewed vision for learning and teaching at UTAS. The Learning and Teaching Strategic Plan 2012-2014 articulates the objectives and rationales for the learning and teaching environment in which the LMS will be implemented and informs the learning and teaching deliverables of the project.
