As usual here are a few institutions making the jump to Moodle,California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, California article: In April this year CalPoly announced its gradual transition to Moodle from Blackboard.  The move was spurred by a forced upgrade to the newest version of Blackboard which would cause and equally disruptive learning curve comparative with the adoption of other LMSs available on the market.  This provided the impetus to reevaluate LMS needs and requirements.  The absence of licensing fees is sited as a major contributing factor in the decision.Andrews University, Berrien Springs, Michigan article: Andrews is switching from D2L to Moodle this academic year.  The decision follows their periodic evaluation of software needs prior to the sunset of their D2L contract.  Students, according to the student paper, have reported mixed opinions.Bryn Mawr University, Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania blog post:  After evaluating and comparing Moodle to Blackboard the current provider/LMS, Bryn Mawr has decided to transition to the open source software.  During a pilot of Moodle faculty and students found that both systems offered a very similar feature set and capabilities.  According to the information on Bryn Mawr’s Tech Bar site, “After the initial costs of transition, the decision to move away from a commercial product that annually increases its subscription costs at rates well ahead of inflation was seen as a major financial sustainability advantage in switching to Moodle.”

For Zynga, success lies in the first three clicks — Tech News and Analysis

Leave a comment

Everyone knows that socially, good first impressions are very important. So it makes sense that companies dealing in social media — such as social gaming giant Zynga — are finding that the first few moments a user interacts with their digital products are similarly crucial for their long-term success.

Zynga aspires to make all its games pass what the company calls the “three click” test: Making games that people can enjoy and get hooked on within the first three clicks of the mouse. According to Zynga CEO Mark Pincus, that is all the time a first-time user will give to a game before deciding whether it’s a keeper.
