After 17 years, Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands needed VLE software that could take their higher education institution into the future. Their approach to Change Management gave instructors and students the opportunity to really have a say in what they wanted from education technology, and it worked. Learn about how Delft University used a higher education learning management system to transform their education. Video Transcript Speaking: Timo Kos - Director LDE Centre for Education and Learning, Delft University of Technology "We had to take a decision on replacing our learning environment which we had for seventeen years last year, and we thought it was a great moment to take the next step in acquiring a learning environment which would help us through the next decade." "D2L was very helpful in the way we approached the project and really advised us on how to shape it and how to implement and migrate the courses to make sure that we didn’t make any errors and that our approach made sense. D2L advised us to not go overboard in the first year and really made sure that both instructors and students would get used to Brightspace before moving onto the more advanced features. D2L was very clearly focused on education, so the way we work with them was very helpful in making sure that what we wanted for our educational goals they really understood that and helped us think through our implementation and migration strategy with the primary focus on education and not on the idea aspect of a project like this." "So we set up a whole change program where teachers and students were involved in advisory boards, and I think this was really helping us rolling out this new learning environment and getting a lot of people enthusiastic about it, and they are really enthusiastic about it. So for every department, every school, every program, we wanted to have a similar learning experience, and it really helped also to get people on board in accepting the new environment." "It also meant that we involved a lot of teachers and a lot of students, but also support staff in implementing Brightspace. A lot of people also took ownership of the project and took ownership of the idea that you know we all have to make it into a success including teachers, that was I think one of the big strengths of the way we approached the way we did it." In the core, this is not an IT project, it’s about education it’s about evolving education and involving teachers and students and to really make them work together in this learning environment.
