The Standalone LMS is Dead

Dan Pontefract

Those organizations (and frankly public learning institutions) that are clinging to their standalone learning management systems as a way in which to serve up formal ILT course schedules and eLearning are absolutely missing the big picture.

I’m looking forward to the discussion opportunities around where learning management systems are heading. Martin, as chief Moodler, has contributed enormously to the adoption and development of learning management systems (with Moodle 2.0 apparently being a significant step forward in social networked learning: site-wide cohorts, portfolio support, external blog feeds, updated wiki, community hubs, etc) in education.

Future Learning Interview

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

There is substantial commercial pressure for such a reworking of the system; indeed, they envision it reaching right down into the public school level, with testing allowing the proliferation of private schools, charter schools, home schooling, and other non-public school offerings. So, yes, these new models are harbingers of much more sweeping changes to the education system. Systems that can analyze data online inside a walled-garden will have to my mind a short lifespan.

Creating the Connectivist Course

We had both seen them in operation in the past, and had most recently been influenced by Alec Couros’s online graduate course and David Wiley’s wiki-based course.

Internet and digital systems were advancing rapidly, in ways that could be known. Existing adaptive learning systems are a lot like computer programs. But now the contributions the students make look like computer code as well, and the system changes behaviour according to student input. Interconnectivity of devices and systems will be a significant feature of the “Internet of things” and activities. It feeds back into performance.

Sustainability and MOOCs in Historical Perspective

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

In the mid-1990s, people began to develop learning management systems. I'm sure you're all familiar with learning management systems. In addition to this commercial stream, we had the open-source stream and, most especially, learning management systems called Moodle, which I'm sure you may be familiar with, and Sakai, which is less common, but was created by a consortium of American universities. So we had two models for learning management systems.

So in our work we examined the potential of social tagging, and the impact of individual and collective knowledge on social tagging systems. The focus here will be a tagging system, and in particular a system for recommending tags. We need a good understanding of the cognitive mechanisms involved in producing and consuming the data, and you need system affordances that facilitate its use. We want also to talk about what we can do to make these systems work better, eg.,
