Abstract

Abstract: The authors examine faculty use of course management systems (CMS) by department, school and college at the University of San Diego. Data were taken in 2003, 2004, 2008 and 2012. In the College of Arts and Sciences, faculty use of CMS increased, from 16.8% in 2003 to 23% in 2008 and 24% in 2012, with significant variations at the department level. University-wide usage patterns also varied considerably, but the School of Business, together with some (but not all) science and social science programs, were consistently heavy users. Overall we notice that CMS are still a minority choice for most faculty on our campus, with relatively little penetration into pedagogical practice over a span of ten years; which, we argue, suggests a cautious approach when deploying online resources in the classroom, since faculty, and the institutions that house them, vary so widely.
