LMS Evaluations (Learning Management Systems)

/
Every year the Gilfus Education Group assists dozens of academic institutions in evaluating their existing LMS. In addition, many academic institutions embark on their own projects to understand which LMS is the best for them. For various reasons each academic institution selects a specific application, be it open source or proprietary or because of ease of use, costs or, functional and pedagogical reasons. The following are a few examples of independent evaluations done by academic institutions and gathered from their appropriate sites in order to make it easier to compare and contrast each process and the identified results.
