Targeted faculty self-identified after general training sessions

Appropriate training through @One and other sources was identified.  Faculty involvement was solicited through new publication DE.COM, distributed on the first of every month from February to December, 2010

-Ensured that seven faculty members participated in training.



-Three faculty completed Moodle training in spring 2011 so that they can pilot Moodle in summer 2011.  A total of 23 faculty have been scheduled to complete Moodle training in summer 2011.  Training consists of formal training through Remote Learner and hands-on follow-up with the faculty support person.  The goal is to migrate to Moodle all courses that are currently in Blackboard for fall 11, then to migrate all courses using other LMS for spring 12.
