|Next Wave: A SUNYConnect LMS Update
|Fredonia is the first campus to implement the
SUNYConnect LMS. Binghamton, Buffalo, Oswego, Stony Brook, and Tompkins Cortland
have been busy learning about ALEPH, testing databases, and configuring the software. The
next round of campuses
scheduled to implement the system have been announced. Interested in the how - what -
when and why of migrating to the new system? Here are some opportunities to answer those
Vince Courtney's article can give you a sense of the scope of the project at an individual campus. He gives us a real-world look at some of the chores necessary to get the new LMS up and running.
SUNY OLIS will be making two presentations at the upcoming NAAUG meeting. The North American ALEPH Users' Group meets in Montreal June 3-5. One of our presentations will focus on individual implementations ("SUNYConnect: Implementation Planning for a Consortium") at the campus level, and the other will discuss plans and projects for the SUNYConnect union catalog and the associated universal borrowing component ("SUNYConnect: Development of a Union Catalog").
Broome, Cayuga, Cortland, Herkimer, Morrisville, Onondaga and Upstate Medical should probably pay particular attention. They've been chosen by the SUNYConnect Advisory Council to be the next wave of sites to implement the SUNYConnect LMS.
