This is my first post, and I’m looking forward to your comments. I’m working as a Digital Learning Team Leader in a boutique private university in İstanbul Turkey.
Having 3000+ students, we are considering to use Open edx as our single LMS option in the near future.
Currently our LMS solution is Blackboard. We are considering to move from BB to open edx. A local software company will setup and perform the maintenance and customisation. We will have a 2 semester long pilot process for open edx. Mean while whole university will continue to use BB as usual. After pilots, we are planning to switch totally from BB to open edx for whole university.
What do you think about using open Edx as the only LMS option after using BB for 5 years? Any challenges for Instructors, students or us -as the digital learning team-?
Unfortunately we will not be able to use 2 platforms at the same time after pilot process because of budget limitations.
