A limited pilot group began use of Connect Pro in the fall of ’09. Members of this group were given access to unlimited use of the product in order to evaluate the feasibility of expanding adoption in the future.  The group was asked to base their evaluation on several factors including:

  • Anticipated ease of use for faculty members/students
  • Difficulty of learning curve
