Implementing an LMS for Remote Learning

Timeline created by Shirin Kassih
  • Choose the core team in charge of the LMS implementation

    This team will oversee the administration, technical support, and content management of the new LMS
  • Period: to

    Conduct ongoing evaluation and assessment

    And always look for ways to improve and enhance the system as long as the LMS is in operation
  • Establish the individual roles of the core team members

    Some vital players may include:
    *Team leader who oversees the overall LMS implementation to completion while working directly with the LMS vendor
    * Project manager who tracks all significant milestones in the LMS implementation process to ensure all deadlines are met
    * LMS specialist who supervises the development of content to the new LMS
    * Learning and Development administrator who ensures that the LMS matches the school goals
    * IT expert who manages the integration process with other systems
  • Work closely with our LMS vendor

    Open communication between our core team and the LMS vendor is key to a successful implementation. This ensures that the implementation coordinates with our goals and happens within our timeframe
  • Establish an LMS implementation plan and timeline

    This step depends on which type of LMS the school chose and whether the LMS will be installed on our own server or will be hosted or cloud-based on the vendor’s server. This step also depends on the number of user accounts and software programs our school intends to migrate into and integrate with the LMS
  • Prepare for data migration

    This step will include decisions on which courses, data, and instructional assets are to be transferred to the new LMS
  • Make a trial run with a group of handpicked users

    This should be done before completing the LMS implementation process and officially launching the new LMS. Through this step, any issues occurred need to be documented and reported to the core team members and the LMS vendor.
  • Offer trainings to all users who will utilize the LMS

  • Communicate with all the school stakeholders about the rollout and when will it happen

  • Review how the process went for all users

    Once the LMS implementation process is complete and when the new system has been in operation for a period of time, the core team need to review how the process went for all users and pinpoint any technical glitches that may have hampered the rollout and then work on correcting them
  • Evaluate the LMS implementation

    This can be done by assessing how many users logged onto the system and how they progressed through it, whether they completed the courses, and how they scored.
