The LMS of the Future: Exploring the Next Generation Digital Learning Environment | EDUCAUSE.edu

The LMS of the Future: Exploring the Next Generation Digital Learning Environment | EDUCAUSE.edu | Blackboard Tips, Tricks and Guides for Higher Education | Scoop.it

If you could replace your current LMS with any application or platform you could imagine, what would it look like? Would it be much like what you have now, but with specific improvements and enhancements? Or would it be something totally out of the box, an entirely new approach?

 

Over the past six months, EDUCAUSE has been conducting research on that very question. Enabled by a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the EDUCAUSE team solicited input from roughly 80 thought leaders from the higher education community, including faculty, academic technology staff, accessibility experts, and vendors. The team conducted interviews, convened brainstorming sessions and commissioned a special report from the EDUCAUSE Center for Analysis and Research (ECAR) on the current state of the LMS. We have summarized our findings in a recently released white paper.

How I lost my faith in the LMS (or ‘my journey towards LMS nihilism’) | Join the Dots

What this led to was what I would consider a ‘seismic’ event in the LMS space in Australian Higher Ed, with sixteen of Australia’s 40 universities transitioning to Moodle (mostly from WebCT) in the space of four-and-a-bit-years. It is an interesting mental activity to consider what the landscape would look like now if any one of those three factors had not been present – but I’ll leave that to the reader as an exercise.
