Strategic Initiative: Catalyst Migration
The Strategic Initiative badge is issued annually to those that have been a key contributor to a major University project that supports the American Public University System strategic plan for the year. During 2020, the Strategic Initiative was Catalyst - Learning Management System (LMS) Migration. This initiative focused improving learner experiences through implementation of a new LMS which powers American Public University & American Military University online classrooms.
During 2020, the earner of this badge made significant contributions to the migration of courses to a new online classroom to improve user experience, promote student-to-student and faculty-to-student interaction, enable a robust mobile classroom, and further differentiate APUS as a leader in online learning.
