Abstract

Consistent with the RIPPLES approach, this paper argues that aligning critical factors, such as Resources, Infrastructure, People, Policies, Learning and Support, to address the needs at different parts of the organisation, can provide an avenue for developing a collaborative learning environment for stakeholders involved in technology implementation. The paper provides an insightful overview of the institutional application of the RIPPLES model, to assist in the repositioning and renewal of academic practice, using the implementation of Moodle as one of the vehicles to support the transformation. In doing so, the paper highlights some strengths, weaknesses and opportunities pertaining to the strategies in place to support a sustainable approach to technology integration and renewal of educational practice. Descriptions of considerations and actions taken allow the reflective findings from the process to be reused by other institutions involved in a similar process of transformation.
