Analysis of three different models used to acquire three e-learning solutions at the same university

Abstract : The Universtiy of Pretoria has been using an electronic assessment system since 1991 and a learning management system (LMS) since 1998. Both systems required urgent upgrading. In 2003 a further need arose in the Faculty of Health Sciences, for an electronic portfolio system. The Department for Education Innovation has thus implemented three new systems during the past three years: a new electronic assessment system, an upgraded LMS, and an electronic portfolio system. This paper analyzes the advantages and challenges experienced in each of the three different implementation models adopted. Recommendations are suggested, not as guidelines for information technology specialists, but rather for other individuals who are responsible for, or may consider acquiring, a new e-learning system.
