Interesting comparision of these popular LMSs.

My personal favourite continues being Edmodo - ease of use for learners, a comfort for teachers; and a healthy exchange in the networks.

Oh my - this is very exciting, especially the ability to set styles. It would be great if the styles are linked to the user so that I could keep these as I moved from one course to another.

 

Great stuff!

5 Digital Tools For The Flipped Classroom

5 Digital Tools For The Flipped Classroom | Learning Management Systems | Scoop.it

"The flipped classroom is a useful technique that has moved lectures out of the class, and onto digital media. In doing so, teachers can drastically increase interaction time with their students... A number of tools are available that can be used to record lectures, including YouTube, Edmodo, Schoology, and Moodle. No matter what tool you’re using, recording and uploading lectures, then hosting them for years to come has never been easier."

LMS 4.0: Will Semantic Remorse Lead to Student Engagement?

Don Dea's curator insight, May 13, 2013 11:45 PM

The challenge ahead is that the transition to LMS 4.0 is not about adding more features (better grade books, enhanced chat, collaboration tools, or analytics).  \Rather, LMS 4.0 and its emphasis on student engagement – making the LMS sticky – will require a reconceptualization and redesign of the LMS as we now know it.  It will require data and evidence about (a) how students engage (or not) with the current generation of LMS platforms, and (b) how students learn with various technology resources, on campus, in hybrid courses, and online.  The need for data and evidence to aid and inform design and development will stand in sharp contrast to (the still all too common) opinion and epiphany that continue to drive so much of campus IT planning and policy and so much of technology application development.
