Choosing a New CMS Checklist

Choosing a New CMS Checklist | Distance Ed Archive | Scoop.it

"Choosing a New CMS Checklist:

According to a new white paper, the first-generation CMS (1994-2004) was basically a brochure. Its pages were static and adding content was usually done by a webmaster, which limited new content. The second-generation CMS (2003-2010) had more dynamic websites, but was still not equipped to handle mobile content and maintenance costs were very high. The third-generation CMS (present) focuses on social, mobile, and cloud by making it easier to create content, integrate with social channels, and support new innovations.

 

So what should government agencies be thinking about as they select a new CMS? Below are a few considerations each agency should be thinking of, but for a complete check list, be sure to download Acquia's white paper: A Practical Guide to Selecting a CMS.

ghbrett's insight:

GovLoop is a Knowledge Network for Government, but also a great resource for people engaged in teaching or training online whether for an organization or corporation. This is a timely piece because as Amy points out, the current Content Management Systems are a moving target. Also, the post points to a number of resources to support her recommendations as well as links to more information about the processes. If you like this article and its resources, it may be worthwhile to you to go back to her first two posts on the topic.

Instructional Design Documents

Instructional Design Documents | Distance Ed Archive | Scoop.it

"...“DesignDoc” is a formal outline of what will be developed for a course, as in an Instructional Design Document. This document can be used to map out what will be developed and is often used as an agreement of work to be done before development starts. My experience has been that every workplace has its own version, requirements, and format, but the elements are pretty consistent." -- from source: http://mvenable.wordpress.com/

 

Note: This is another posting from Dr. Venable's blog. Although it is from way back in 2010 the information is still quite relevant. She presents an extensive outline of the elements mentioned above. Plus she includes links to resources and reading materials that support her check list for developing Instructional Design projects. It is a good starting point for new instructional designers. and may provide new insights for more experienced instructional designers.
