Learning Management System Implementation Framework for Higher Education-Case of University of the Witwatersrand

Rabelani Dagada and Paul Mungai
Abstract— The process of implementing a Learning Management System (LMS), especially when this involves the replacement of a legacy LMS is usually risky, frustrating, and expensive. To address the risk involved, this article suggests a seamless framework that could be used by institutions which intend to implement a LMS. The framework is based on a case study at the University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa where the institution migrated from the use of Blackboard a proprietary LMS, to Sakai an open source LMS. It helps in identifying all the key processes and activities involved in the implementation process of a LMS.

Index Terms— E-learning, learning management system, KEWL, Sakai, Moodle, blackboard
