Northwest will begin moving to the .NExT version beginning spring 2010. All empty course sites requested for the spring 2010 trimester will be created in the .NExT version. eCollege will move all courses from the legacy system to the .NExT version for Northwest beginning with the 2010 summer and fall trimesters. CITE will be contacting faculty as we begin to convert legacy course sites to this new version.
CITE will be providing online tutorials for the new version and all faculty will be enrolled in the eCollege .NExT New System Features Tutorials as well. During the spring trimester, we will be working on a manual to use for the .NExT version and will distribute these as needed. We will also be hosting a training session on the new features during the spring professional development week. Faculty may register for workshops at http://cite.nwmissouri.edu/workshop/
