LMS Selection and Implementation (2013)

Educational Technology Research + Learning Management System Support


As a part of my master's practicum project, I remotely supported a nonprofit organization as they worked to transform their paper-based professional development program to an online self-service and blended model.


My contributions to this project included:


  • Researching LMS systems and providing suggestions for systems that met the client's need and budget

  • Installing Moodle on the client's website

  • Manually installing the latest version supported by the client's server. (The SQL requirements made it impossible to install the newest version, at that time.)

  • Install version 2.7 after the client chose to upgrade their hosting package

  • Downloading and installing additional modules to customize the system to meet the client's need (ex. certificate module)

  • Creating the original layout and course set-up

  • Helping the client to embed videos from their streaming accounts

  • Authoring a step-by-step guidebook to enable the client to maintain and update their new LMS independently

  • Occasional troubleshooting with student accounts

  • Authoring a step-by-step guidebook to empower the client to independently troubleshoot learner issues 



This was one of the first projects where I was asked to consult on finding the best educational technology platform for the project. 

Client Feedback

Working with Traci to build The Body Positive's first online course was an absolute joy. Not only is extremely skilled, but what also stood out for me was her responsiveness to my needs and questions, and her incredible work ethic. She was able to explain technical issues in a clear and concise way, and never made me feel ignorant if I didn't understand a concept. I am forever grateful to Traci for the work she did for my nonprofit organization. The work she did for us was of the highest caliber.
