Discuss the difference between campus-based course management systems and open source course management systems. Open-source CMS is “free” to use and alter to match existing needs, the cost for the institution to buy may be very low but the cost to own can be very high [ CITATION Nel18 \l 1033 ]. Institutions must address the cost for IT department time, the skill set to manage server and network issues, and training time on open-source CMS [ CITATION Nel18 \l 1033 ]. Campus-based CMS portals are customized, personalized entries or gateways where users, including students and faculty, can access all of the content they typically need[ CITATION Nel18 \l 1033 ]. The portal integrates and provides a secure access point to the data, information, and applications that users need in their roles as a student or faculty [ CITATION Nel18 \l 1033 ]. Portals generally include enterprise resource systems, community building communications, admissions, retention, web-based academic counseling, and metrics to measure success [ CITATION Nel18 \l 1033 ].
