             Subject: Evaluating Course Management Systems - Online Workshop

    From: John R. Bourne, Director, The Sloan Center for OnLine Education
    (SCOLE) at Olin and Babson Colleges

    Registration is now open for the Evaluating Course Management Systems
    Online Workshop which starts on Monday June 4, 2001 and runs through Friday
    June 29, 2001.

    This workshop provides an opportunity to try out and compare several course
    management tools (Blackboard, Prometheus, and WebCT).
    After you've had the opportunity to try out the software, both through
    specific tasks and also trying out other aspects, there is a
    trade-off analysis which will help you see how each vendor compares based
    on the items you feel are most important. You will also be able to compare
    your results with those of the other participants. If your faculty and
    staff are investigating this topic for your campus, you may be interested
    in having several people from your institution attend this upcoming online
    workshop. If you are interested in having your staff take this workshop,
    you may register at:

    If you would like more information about this workshop you may send email
    to marjorie.quinlan@olin.edu.
