Moving from One to Many - LMS Products are Two Generations Behind

Tony Karrer

We need to build the collaborative aspect of learning back into these experiences if we're going to achieve the collective outcomes we want. Collaborative learning environments and strategies such as virtual classrooms, discussion forums, mentoring and coaching need to be enabled and mandated as part of the learning experience. Further, the fact that he's suggesting that they need to get on-board with collaboration suggests that LMS products are two cycles behind.

In yesterday’s presentation for Collaborative Learning 04, we asked “In business culture, where’s the pendulum this year?&#. “Contrast that with the groupware approach to things where people are placed into groups defined organizationally or functionally.&#.
