Making a Successful LMS Switch – A Case Study of DMA

Conference Archive

Learning Solutions Conference & Expo 2012 - March 23, 2012

Jack McGrath

President and Creative Director
Digitec Interactive

In the 2010 eLearning Guild study, Getting Started with Learning Management Systems, only 62% of respondents said their LMS lives up to vendor promises, while 13% plan to abandon their current LMS. How do you switch to another LMS, ensure that you choose the right vendor, coordinate the migration to the new platform, and integrate with your existing systems? If you are migrating instructor-led content to online or revising legacy online content, how can you integrate effective Adult Learning theory with the latest technology to ensure a successful migration and a positive learning experience for your training community?  

Participants in this case-study session will learn how DMA migrated to a new LMS. You’ll see how they converted instructor-led learning experiences for online delivery, and get practical advice and a checklist for vendor selection and platform evaluation. You’ll discover the “tips and tricks” that ensure integration and user migration is handled effectively, and see demonstrations of the new DMA online learning platform and course samples.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to perform vendor selection and system evaluations
  • How to switch from a existing LMS to a new platform with minimal user disruption and vendor cost
  • How to avoid “settling for mediocrity” in online learning
  • How to “convert” instructor-led current or legacy content into effective online learning experiences
  • How to manage, launch, and deal with things that are out of original project scope

Audience: Novice-to-intermediate participants with a basic understanding of eLearning and learning management systems.
