We, the undersigned, are students and staff of the University of Wolverhampton.
We oppose the ratification of a decision by Academic Board on September 17th 2012 to move from the University of Wolverhampton's own, self-developed VLE, WOLF, to the open source VLE platform Moodle.
There has not been open discussion and debate of this matter amongst either the staff or student bodies. We ask for that to happen as a matter of urgency.
WOLF looks good, has all the functionality of other platforms, integrates with our Student Management System SITS, and is easy to use. In an era of increasing competitiveness in the Higher Education market we are proud of WOLF's distinctiveness.
We do not want to lose it.
Set up by Dr Rosie Miles, English, on September 7th 2012.
