Brown CIS submitted message in today’s Morning Mail that read:
Brown has embarked on a project to replace MyCourses, our current learning management system. The version Brown is running will soon no longer be supported. In an effort to find a replacement solution which best meets the needs of the campus community, the project team is collecting feedback from faculty, staff and students.
Finally! After semesters of suffering through the frustratingly slow, one-window-limiting, counter-intuitive service provided by Blackboard Learning Co., this blogger is happy to hear that Brown is finally looking for an alternative. Maybe the next incarnation of MyCourses will make our lives a little bit easier i.e. won’t log us out after three seconds of inactivity. To provide your input to CIS, answer the survey they put up before November 12th.
