Question 17

17. Were these provided by one of the participating institutions or were they cloud-based?

Provided by SUNY Cortland.

SUNY, ESC / ULPGC : the LMS for this course was the ECS’s one as a requirement. Using email, Skype and FB was personal initiatives of our students.

The Texas Tech Moodle was provided by the Texas Tech English Department. WordPress and YouTube are free, cloud-based technologies./ MJU students used cloud-based their cafe blog.

Blackboard was provided by Corning Community College.

Blackboard was provided by Corning Community College.

Blackboard was provided by UNCG

Both Ahesi and Swarthmore use Moodle as their LMS … the course in this instance was hosted at Swarthmore.  The goal was to make access to the course seamless and equal to students from both institutions.  We achieved this by creating a “trust” relationship between the Moodle servers at Swarthmore and Ashesi.  Xythos network storage was provided Swarthmore.  VoiceThread and Youtube were cloud based.

Buffalo State provided the LMS.  Students interacted on discussion boards. / Vimeo-purchased by Dr. Buonanno, but it may be covered in the Atlantis grant.  It was only about $60/year.

CCU provided the Blackboard access, but USFQ uses it as well.


Cloud-based. We didn’t use an institution supported LMS because students from each institution were not able to get access to the other institution’s LMS.

D2L access was provided by SJSU.

D2L was provided by the SJSU. Also, we decided to use google email since we adopted google hangout for the synchronous session between students.

E-college provided by National University

Lehigh hosted the Moodle interface, with Drexel and U-Ghana Business School given login information to connect to the system.

Moodle was provided through Moscow State University. Voicethread and Animoto are cloud-based.

RIT and ACMT share a common general education and program curriculum, as well as an enterprise-wide LMS, namely D2L.

Students used e-mails with which they had registered at their respective institutions. StoryTimed is cloud-based.

The course Web site was located on the English departmental server at TTU, Wordwise provided by the institute in Jena.

The shared Blackboard site was provided by UC, and Facebook and Google are cloud based.

The site was provided by UTEP but designed by both faculty members and the multimedia specialists from both universities. / The Ning site is an open source site and therefore cloud based. This proved especially useful for both institutions. If a LMS system was used it (i.e. from VU or UTEP) this would have created many problems with regards to logging on students. Initially both VU and UTEP offered an internal LMS configuration, but I strongly believed this would have compromised the collaborative nature of the venture. A UTEP member of staff suggested Ning, and after exploring this and paying a price to remove the advertising, both VU and UTEP created a unique site without borders.

UWM provided D2L.

We used the George Mason Blackboard system and HSE students were given access for the semester.
