The large-scale deployment of learning management systems (LMS) throughout higher education in recent years raises far-reaching questions that have yet to be defined or addressed in a systematic way. Key questions include: 1) How long does a class site remain a living document? 2) What is included in the “record” of a class? 3) How long is this record kept? and 4) Who has access to this record, and under what circumstances? This session, based on a recent paper for the EDUCAUSE Center for Applied Research (ECAR), will explore these questions and their complex implications for institutional policies–from intellectual property rights to records management to documentation of scholarship.
