Learning Management System Surveys

Currently there are two surveys posted on the MyBlackboard page. These are being conducted by a working group chartered by ACITAS, the IPFW Senate committee for academic computing. The feedback and information collected through this survey will be used to help inform, shape, and guide the direction the campus will take with its Learning Management System over the next two to three years. The committee recognizes that your time is valuable and appreciates you taking time to complete these surveys, which will be available through May 15.
