Mothership Project

Essentially, the Mothership Project is a high-level LMS that doubles as a central course catalog. Multiple second-level LMS iterations (for each school/campus) are tied to this top-level LMS (i.e., the Mothership). Then via common cartridge imports/exports, the Mothership LMS exports course cartridges into each second-level LMS (school/campus). Additionally, content developed at each individual school/campus can be exported back up to the Mothership LMS. This capability provides clients with a central course catalog through which they can easily distribute and manage curriculum and associated Learning Outcomes across their multiple schools/campuses. Each school/campus has their own unique LMS site-their own brand/logo, etc. There would be no difference for the faculty or users at these second-level learning management system sites. The course content is simply controlled at the top level and then synced up with the second-level learning management system sites for each school/campus.

This Mothership functionality may be particularly relevant to schools, programs, or districts that may have the need to report on and manage Learning Outcomes/Objectives, provide accountability in the form of reports and curriculum management, and other administrative functions. These entities would seemingly significantly benefit from a customized solution that had a network comprised of several learning management systems, rather than just one learning management system on which all clients are served. The flexibility provided with the Mothership solution enables you to tailor each LMS to its local context.
