2 If We Build It, Will They Join April 29, 2014 Deanna Grogan

3 April 29, 2014 Today’s Agenda Background Where we started Progress Where we are now Discussion If we build it, will they join?

4 Background If we build it, will they join?

5 April 29, 2014 Meet Deanna eLearning technologist work within the Information Technology Services department (ITS) part of the Instructional Technology Resource Centre (ITRC) If we build it, will they join?

6 April 29, 2014 Western 21,000 full-time undergraduate students 4,800 full-time graduate 1,400 full-time Faculty 2,400 full-time Staff If we build it, will they join?

7 April 29, 2014 OWL Powered by Sakai (open source) Replaced WebCT in 2012 Only centrally supported LMS at Western 12,500 course sites, 6,400 project sites 395,000 section enrollments If we build it, will they join?

8 WHMIS Originally hosted in WebCT Staff/Faculty were automatically enrolled Completion was legislated and departments were provided reports on who still needed to complete the training Site contained content, a quiz and a certificate tool If we build it, will they join?

9 WHMIS By the end of WebCT we had over 65,000 participants enrolled but only 30,000 had completed the quiz Large number of enrollments made site hard to manage Also added courses for AODA, Safe Campus, Lab Safety, X-ray safety… If we build it, will they join?

10 A New OWL in Town As we migrated to Sakai, how would we accommodate these sites We also had a OWL Register function to replace (allowed non-Western people to register for accounts in WebCT) If we build it, will they join?

11 Where we started If we build it, will they join?

12 Things we got for free Project Sites Similar to course sites but with no rosters Can be created by anyone with a Western account If we build it, will they join?

13 Things we got for free Joinable Sites Allows anyone with an account on OWL to join Membership tool has a searchable list of joinable sites No admin intervention required If we build it, will they join?

14 Things we got for free Certification Tool (this one was less free!!) There was not an existing tool that would work in our instance We used a contrib tool created by Rsmart and customized it to work in our version of Sakai If we build it, will they join?

15 So we proposed… Using Project Sites, Joinable Sites, and the customized Certification tool to host the training courses They weren’t that impressed… If we build it, will they join?

16 Issues Identified Visibility Too many steps to join sites Certificate tool doesn’t support expiry dates and reporting Didn’t want students to join the sites If we build it, will they join?

17 Improvements Made If we build it, will they join?

18 Joinable Sites Added a join link in the joinable sites list If we build it, will they join?

19 Joinable Sites Added a join tool, so that users could join within the site If we build it, will they join?

20 Joinable Sites Added Join Bar If we build it, will they join?

21 Joinable Sites Added the ability to restrict which account type could join site Added on join option Added remove from join list option Added join group option If we build it, will they join?

22 Certification Tool Customized reporting to provide Downloadable results Expiry Date Including Student/Staff Number If we build it, will they join?

23 Certification Tool If we build it, will they join?

25 So, did they join? If we build it, will they join?

26 How did we do? Several training courses are up and running in OWL Each uses a project site, with a joinable option and the certification tool Visibility is controlled by linking from high profile pages Much better matching between enrollment and completion (almost 90%) HR is happy and is rolling out more courses with this configuration If we build it, will they join?

27 Coming Soon If we build it, will they join?

28 Future Improvements Tuning Certification Tool to improve reporting efficiency If we build it, will they join?

29 Discussion If we build it, will they join?

30 Discussion Lessons Learned Free is never free! Even when you don’t like what you’ve got, you don’t want to change Everyone loves certificates If we build it, will they join?

31 Discussion Any questions? Or thoughts? Anyone else using the LMS for required training? Anyone using your LMS for non-official course purposes? If we build it, will they join?
