dc.description.abstract From 2001 to the fall of 2006, the lecturers and students of The University of the West Indies, St. Augustine Campus, Trinidad and Tobago, used WebCT, a commercial web-based learning management system (LMS), to prepare, manage and deliver learning content and resources to students. The low level of adoption and high cost of the license led university administrators to question the benefit-to-cost ratio. A committee was formed to compare open source LMSs (Moodle, Sakai, and Angel) to WebCT and, based on this data, recommend an LMS for the St. Augustine Campus. Based on their review of the pricing, hardware/software requirements, communication tools, productivity tools, opportunities for student involvement, administrative tools, course development, and curriculum design features, the committee chose to adopt Moodle. This paper describes the Moodle implementation strategy and reflects on the issues as well as successes arising over the last two years. en
