A comparison of courses that do or do not utilize a Course Management System (CMS) was undertaken from the standpoint of a new faculty member. Seven distinct advantages were found with CMS implementation including initial tutorial group set-ups, email communication, sharing of student generated products, sharing of instructor-generated products, collection of assignments, delivery of graded assignments, and plagiarism checks. CMS training that precedes the start of a course is recommended for new teaching staff, particularly for large courses of greater than 100 students, where CMS implementation has substantial benefits.
