No Sugarcoating the LMS: Q&A with Instructure CEO, Josh Coates (EdSurge News) | Blackboard Tips, Tricks and Guides for Higher Education | Scoop.it

The MOOC phenomenon of 2013 created an international dialogue around opening education to people who normally wouldn’t have access. A lot of VCs paid a lot of money to start that conversation hoping that a business model would emerge. To date, no viable model has emerged. But it doesn’t mean it’s not a useful dialogue to be having.

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.

7 Things You Should Know About New Directions for the LMS | EDUCAUSE.edu

7 Things You Should Know About New Directions for the LMS | EDUCAUSE.edu | Blackboard Tips, Tricks and Guides for Higher Education | Scoop.it

Most of today’s learning management systems were developed in an era when virtually all of higher education was organized around courses and credit hours. Changes in pedagogy, new models of learning, and new opportunities made possible by technology have outpaced developments in LMSs. In response, LMSs are beginning to evolve toward being platforms on which a college or university can build a learning ecosystem. By being learner focused, future LMSs are more likely to meet the needs of institutions and students and to accommodate the new structures of higher education, including developments such as competency-based education, prior-learning assessment, badging, and others.

Using the LMS as a Social Network in a Supersized Course | EDUCAUSE.edu

Using the LMS as a Social Network in a Supersized Course | EDUCAUSE.edu | Blackboard Tips, Tricks and Guides for Higher Education | Scoop.it

Large class sizes make it infinitely more challenging for college instructors to connect and communicate with individual students. This might not be a big issue if professors have an army of teaching assistants running smaller tutorial groups, but that's not always the case; in my courses, for example, hundreds of students meet in a single learning space for a weekly lecture or webinar. As in online classes of any size, having a massive group of students in a single location creates the real risk that students will feel anonymous and disengaged due to a lack of meaningful interaction with their professor and peers.

Social Networks Adapting Pedagogical Practice (SNAPP)

 

SNAPP is a software tool that allows users to visualize the network of interactions resulting from discussion forum posts and replies. The network visualisations of forum interactions provide an opportunity for teachers to rapidly identify patterns of user behaviour – at any stage of course progression. SNAPP has been developed to extract all user interactions from various commercial and open source learning management systems (LMS) such as BlackBoard (including the former WebCT), and Moodle. SNAPP is compatible for both Mac and PC users and operates in Internet Explorer, Firefox and Safari.
