ANGEL: LMS Update

ANGEL to Blackboard Migration

Over the last two years since Blackboard's acquisition of ANGEL in 2009, the SUNY Learning Network (SLN) has been investigating migration paths away from ANGEL to another Learning Management System (LMS) product.    Recently, SLN announced that they will officially be supporting Blackboard as the next LMS for SLN campuses.  A new three-year contract between SUNY and Blackboard is nearly complete. 

SUNY Oswego has chosen to participate in this contract when it becomes available and will be looking at migrating from ANGEL to Blackboard sometime over the next 12-18 months.  We will keep users informed of the details on the actual migration as we have them. Faculty interested in participating in the first semester pilot of Blackboard (tentatively scheduled for Fall 2012) can express their interest via an email to the angelhelp-list@ls.oswego.edu  address.
