The Current Ecosystem of Learning Management Systems in Higher Education: Student, Faculty, and IT Perspectives


This study explores faculty and student perspectives on learning management systems in the context of current institutional investments. In 2013, nearly 800 institutions participated in the EDUCAUSE Core Data Service (CDS) survey, sharing their current information technology practices and metrics across all IT service domains. In 2014, more than 17,000 faculty from 151 institutions and more than 75,000 students from 213 institutions responded to ECAR surveys on higher education technology experiences and expectations. Combining the findings from these sources provides a multidimensional perspective about the status and future of the LMS in higher education.
