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.

How to Enhance Students' Experience in Blackboard Learn: The UX Way

How to Enhance Students' Experience in Blackboard Learn: The UX Way | Blackboard Tips, Tricks and Guides | Scoop.it
Upon a new LMS implementation over an institution, it’s not unusual to get detailed instructions from academic leadership, instructors, marketing, or other departments, stating they know their users, how to structure the virtual campus and what must be in a particular place of a given template. It could be a headline, a tab, a button, or a whole page structure. They might be right, of course, but Why don’t ask end-users in the first place to -at least- prove your point?

That’s the so-called UX way: putting user’s experience in the center of every decision-making process.

I have been tuned into the discussion of the LMS provider Infrastructure by a private equity firm lately because of my exposure to my partner in crimes world of Ed-Tech. I have also written several stories about the LMS providers API in the past, and I find the recent discussion around the economics of the business interesting in several ways.
