Learning Management Systems (LMS)


Eduventures Publishes Report on Learning Management Systems

Blackboard excels in "playing well" with the enterprise resource planning and student information systems in a school but its ability to "scale seamlessly" is middling. D2L's Brightspace "integrates with (nearly) everything," but the product roadmap is little influenced by its customers' requests. The Canvas platform from Instructure "meets or exceeds" the core requirements from the "vast majority" of colleges and universities, but its training and support relies heavily on its own community of customers. Those are just a few of the findings from the 2016 report on learning management systems, published this week by education advisory firm Eduventures for its clients.
