Teaching and learning is increasingly enabled by and dependent upon technology.  In the past, the learning management system (LMS) has played a significant role, but faculty increasingly desire a greater choice of tools so that the one with the best fit for the pedagogical purpose can be selected.  As a result, the functional footprint from a single monolithic LMS has decreased over time, with the addition of tools that provide additional capability or flexibility. The University of British Columbia will briefly present the accelerated evaluation process they’ve just begun, and engage participants in discussion about the questions they’re facing.  How do we ensure that the digital learning ecosystem is agile, supportive of teaching innovation and easy to use?  Given that data about our learners now resides in multiple systems, how do show evidence of impact? What changes do we need from vendors to make the future possible?
