Options for CTCs • If your college hosts your own instance of the selected LMS • College is responsible for integration with SMS and system tools like Elluminate, Tegrity, etc. • College is responsible for help desk support • no SBCTC staff support other than sharing best practices in WAOL Advisory Group • Shared faculty and admin professional development when possible • College pays any additional costs for your separate instance
WAOL ANGEL Storage • WAOL ANGEL is over storage limit and faces potentially $70,000 in additional costs this year. • If you use WAOL ANGEL, we need your business plan, and your work in cleaning up old classrooms. • Export Folder on FTP site will only keep 1 month’s worth of export files • Backups Folder will keep files for 2 months
Take Aways: • Mark needs to get info out to system on ANGEL storage issues • This is Brandy’s last meeting • The Tegrity administrator Kick Off is Thursday • Shoreline Tegrity integration was simple and quick • Don’t click “Apply to All User”—it does apply to ALL users • Start thinking about what LMS tools you want to see a demo of. D2L wants to demo
