Virginia Beach, VA (PRWEB) December 10, 2012
Edvance360, the 2011 CODiE winner for Best Post-Secondary Course or Learning Management System, has been working closely with colleges and K-12 schools that have a number of campuses across a geographical area or district. These campuses all have their own learning management systems, but reuse very similar course content. Administrators were reporting problems with managing all of the different versions of content across their multiple campuses. Edvance360 worked closely with them to solve these problems. The result was the Mothership Project.
The Mothership Project is a high level learning management system (LMS) that doubles as a central course catalog. Multiple second-level LMS iterations (for each school/campus) are tied to this top level LMS (i.e., the Mothership). Then, via common cartridge imports/exports, the Mothership LMS exports course cartridges into each second-level LMS (school/campus). Additionally, content developed at each individual school/campus can be exported back up to the Mothership LMS. This capability provides clients with a central course catalog through which they can easily distribute and manage curriculum and associated Learning Outcomes across their multiple schools/campuses. Each school/campus has their own unique LMS site—their own brand/logo, etc. There would be no difference for the faculty or users at these second-level learning management system sites. The course content is simply controlled at the top level and then synced up with the second-level learning management system sites for each school/campus.
“We have found that the Mothership solves painful problems for colleges and K-12 schools with multiple campuses,” explained Cathy Garland, Vice President of Marketing & Sales at Edvance360. “It enables them to report on and manage course content, Learning Outcomes, and provide accountability across institutions.”
