A quote about the LMS

“The proliferation of learning management systems suggests that no one system is sufficiently feature rich, or adequately flexible and extensible enough to meet everyone’s needs or even most institutions’ requirements."

Ira Fuchs, vice president for research in information technology, Mellon Foundation. (2004, July) Learning Management Systems: Are we there yet?
Peter Mellow's insight:
I've always loved this quote and while it is over 10 years old now, it is still are relevant as it was back then. I've always said "An LMS is an LMS is an LMS" It's not the tool you use but how you use it. Good learning design can work in whatever environment it is given and still work. In saying that, it's nice to have a wide pallette of tools available to craft with and make our educational visions a reality.

Report: How Instructors Use the LMS Influences Student Interaction in Class -- Campus Technology

Report: How Instructors Use the LMS Influences Student Interaction in Class -- Campus Technology | Blackboard Tips, Tricks and Guides for Higher Education | Scoop.it
A recent study by Blackboard examined how learning management system (LMS) use in courses influences student activity in the LMS as a kind of proxy for overall course design. More than half of courses (53 percent) were considered "supplemental," relying on the LMS as little more than a way to give students access to course materials, with a little bit of use of gradebook and announcement functionality. In that case the amount of time students spent interacting with the course was 15 hours on average with about 222 student interactions. On the opposite extreme were courses that spent the bulk of time delivering assessments through the LMS, among other activities. There, the average student class time spent in the LMS was nearly five times as long (70 hours), with an average of seven times more student interactions (1,596).

Mark A. Dean's curator insight, June 8, 12:52 AM

While this article is about the workplace, I could see this happening in schools a lot.  The change from taking notes via pen and paper to smartphones may result in a lot of misunderstandings.  The digital natives and non-digital natives will have to find a way to understand each other, and that will take time.
