Learning Platform Review (LPR) Process
Background and Mission
We are seeking User Stories about teaching and learning online from our campus stakeholders (students, faculty, school leadership, support staff, course directors, technologists . . .). We are asking you to add your story by Friday, December 17th. This is an opportunity to make your voice heard! Each UMass campus has been asked to compile these user stories, and we want to be sure to represent the unique needs of our life science campus. Once the user stories are complete, they will be aggregated and presented to vendors and organizations offering learning platform support. These providers will then be asked to reply to the user stories with testing scripts.
A user story takes the following general form: "As a stakeholder, I want to functional requirement so that I can testable outcome."
A sample UMMS user story could look like this: "As a Clerkship Director, I want to easily send and receive multiple assignments to students in New England so that I can assess their progress without bringing them back to campus."
To share your user story, please click the Add Comment link at the bottom of the page. You can include as many unique user stories as you'd like. Please note: your user story will be anonymous unless you choose to include your name.
Most of us have multiple user stories. Please try to separate each unique functional requirement with a new paragraph or a new comment. This will help ensure that no stories are lost!
Lastly, thank you for helping to shape the future of online teaching and learning at UMass Medical School!
