You know the type—a hand, a pen, a whiteboard, and some fun drawings that help bolster your online brand and generate a lot of social shares.

Using the Facebook group as a learning management system: An exploratory study - Wang - 2011 - British Journal of Educational Technology - Wiley Online Library | Learning Management Systems K12 | Scoop.it

Facebook is a popular social networking site. It, like many other new technologies, has potential for teaching and learning because of its unique built-in functions that offer pedagogical, social and technological affordances. In this study, the Facebook group was used as a learning management system (LMS) in two courses for putting up announcements, sharing resources, organizing weekly tutorials and conducting online discussions at a teacher education institute in Singapore.

Google Apps for Education: When Will It Replace the LMS?

Google Apps for Education:  When Will It Replace the LMS? | Learning Management Systems K12 | Scoop.it

History professor Jonathan Rees called it an “uncharacteristically subtle post.” When he posted an excerpt from his university’s report on its Blackboard usage, he didn’t have to say much: “I think all I want to do here is point out that all the things professors use Blackboard for here most (as well as a few of the things that not many people use Blackboard for) can be done for a lot less money than whatever our Blackboard license costs. Sometimes they can be done for no money at all.

LMS Wikis: Unharnessed Potential

LMS Wikis: Unharnessed Potential | Learning Management Systems K12 | Scoop.it

The Wiki is one of the most under-utilized and underestimated feature of an LMS. That’s because, most of us haven’t gotten around to realizing what the Wiki is capable of, and hence the potential of the Wiki feature is unharnessed. This post is an endeavor to explore the various uses of the LMS Wiki.

A Moodle 2 version of the Moodle Tool Guide

A Moodle 2 version of the Moodle Tool Guide | Learning Management Systems K12 | Scoop.it
Many of you will have used and maybe still use Joyce Seitzinger’s Moodle Tool Guide (@catspyjamasnz) which she released nearly two years ago. As her blog mentions since then people have released twelve translations of the guide into Basque, Brazilian Portuguese, Catalan, Croatian, Dutch, French, German, Hebrew, Norwegian, Portuguese, Slovene and Spanish. There has also been some adaptations for specific institutions and also for colour blind users and other LMS like blackboard and Dokoes. * All of these variations are linked from her blog.A Moodle 2 version
So last year I had put together a Moodle 2 version which included the tools as they were now in Moodle 2. I had not released it, but as I have given it to some people in the meantime, I thought I better put it up so people can use it or comment on it, suggest changes and so on. Everyone will have their own take on what should be in it or not, and rightly so. This is probably just another start point for 2 – perhaps.

When Educators Become Curators

When Educators Become Curators | Learning Management Systems K12 | Scoop.it

"A few weeks ago I had the privilege of being the virtual keynote speaker at the Croation MoodleMoot. Thanks to Sandra Kucina and Jasmin Klindžić for inviting me, and making everything happen so smoothly.

 

We agreed that, in line with my PhD topic, I would focus not on Moodle, but on the new digital curation skills being required of all teachers. So it began as an introduction to digital curation and then looked at how educators can curate inside or outside of an LMS. Thanks to those Croatian Moodlers in the Twitter stream for engaging with me afterwards. More feedback is welcome. I look forward to developing my ideas further…"

The Search for Differentiated and Engaging Student Experience

The Search for Differentiated and Engaging Student Experience | Learning Management Systems K12 | Scoop.it

The lines are blurring between content delivery systems (e.g. Cengage MindTap, Pearson MyLabs, etc) and LMS. Content delivery and ability to keep students engaged within the content will drive much of the broader ed tech market. This integration of markets is being seen as a strategically important issue for institutions, particularly for online programs.

Desire2Learn moving to ‘predictive analytics’ with IBM

Desire2Learn moving to ‘predictive analytics’ with IBM | Learning Management Systems K12 | Scoop.it

"This announcement caught my eye, as it suggests a move to link big data and big data analysis directly into online learning. It is just an announcement at this stage of an agreement to work together on developing predictive analytics for online learning. This seems to be a move beyond just trawling through the student information system and LMS to building predictive models of online behaviour.

Watch this space for more discussion about learning analytics. I have a number of questions about who is designing the algorithims and the questions they are intended to answer, what assumptions are driving the design, who has access to the data, what rights students and instructors will have, and how institutions plan to use analytics from online teaching. However, I need some time to do this, so expect something later next month."

A Post-LMS World (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE

A Post-LMS World (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE | Learning Management Systems K12 | Scoop.it

The exponential growth of open source, a new age of interoperable systems, and the increasing demand for e-learning solutions have converged to make the time right for a new kind of LMS. According to Babson Survey Research Group, 65 percent of all reporting higher education institutions said that online learning was a critical part of their long-term strategy, and over 6.1 million students took at least one online course during the fall 2010 term—an increase of 560,000 students over the previous year.1 With such significant organic growth, it is no surprise that administration, faculty, and students are calling for deep changes, including more flexibility and personalization in the next iteration of the LMS. In fact, this intersection of need and demand suggests the viability of a post-LMS world.

 

A post-LMS world does not suggest that the LMS is obsolete but, rather, that the practice of evaluating learning outcomes through a traditional LMS as the sole means for knowledge acquisition is obsolete. The original design of the LMS was transactional and largely administrative in nature, hence the “M” in “LMS.” The function of the traditional LMS is to simplify how learning is scheduled, deployed, and tracked as a means to organize curricula and manage learning materials.

Let’s face it – the learning management platforms (i.e. Moodle, Blackboard) as they exist today, are restrictive, limiting for both the learner and online educator.
