With the kick-off of Blackboard as the new Learning Management System (LMS) for ERICA Campus starting from second semester of 2018, students have begun adapting to the new system. Along with this change, some may be wondering why Hanyang University ERICA Campus implemented Blackboard and what the features of the program are compared to the previous LMS. ERICA Campus’ Center for Teaching and Learning’s Research Professor Cho Yong-hyun and staff of the Office of Academic Affairs at the center Kim Seon-yong further elaborated on the significance of Blackboard and its noticeable features.
The reason behind ERICA Campus’ implementation of Blackboard Run Ultra, which is the newer version, as the new Learning Management System is that as part of the PRogram for Industrial needs - Matched Education (PRIME) project which ends in 2018, ERICA Campus decided to apply this system. There has been six months of system development starting on March 2018 and various Blackboard educational workshops for the professors. Kim provided assistance by creating manuals and guidebooks for Blackboard LMS. In addition, Cho stated that compared to the previous learning management system, Blackboard is advanced in that it is a global “edu-tech” (education and technology) platform with brilliant expandability.
Cho stated that as Blackboard is still in its early stages for ERICA campus, there is plenty of room for adjustment and improvement. The Center for Teaching and Learning is constantly working to keep the program up to date and inform students and professors of any change. The center is always open for those who have inquiries. Cho and Kim hopes that the educational features of Blackboard will promote self-learning education for students and encourage active communications between the students and professors.
