You can attend the next TLTR meeting or go to the website to give your feedback individually.

Kristi Tornquist spoke about attending the Strategic Planning Committee meeting. She was interested in their discussion on including the impact technology has on teaching.

Wade Nelson discussed the upcoming D2L upgrade. The question is to what version will D2L be upgraded. There is a patent infringement case with the worst case potential to force the stop of using the current software. 8.3 is the new version and according to D2L will not infringe on the patent. However, this has not been tested outside of D2L. This version will be available in June. Normally we do not upgrade to software that has been on the market less than 60 days. This may be a rocky road, please be aware there may be problems.
