  3. The Monolithic LMS Model Should the LMS market be focused on this model for the next 20 years as well?
  4. The Monolithic LMS Has Been Successful Provided us with enterprise systems that can run at scale • Supported growth of distance education • Helped drive experiments such as OCW and MOOCs • Have become mission critical systems in higher ed Sakai has proven the success of this model and driven innovation • Open source model, open standards
  5. Monolithic ≠ Creativity Drives us towards generalization and standardization • A “one size fits all” is easier to build, deploy and support • Good for efficiency, not so good for creativity Innovative teaching and learning requires creativity • Think about your most innovative learning experience… Standardized teaching and learning is just not fun! Let’s see a quick example…
  6. How could we allow for greater creativity when using the LMS? Give users the FREEDOM to CREATE their own LMS Facilitate “Tinkerability*” – Allow ANY users to build, deploy, modify and share their own learning apps • Learning app = learning object (content) + functionality Think of the Google Maps API model • Today there are over 1,000,000 apps that use it Users are moving in this direction, we need to catch up *
  7. Learning App Builder Authors app that automatically posts information to Google Map Lessons+ Fashion Trend Map App Learner uses App embedded in Lessons+ to document global trends Fashion Street Trends + Fashion Trend Map Ap p
  8. The Next Generation LMS will be… …highly personalized through learning analytics • Academic early alert systems and Adaptive learning systems • Academic Networking …a delightful user experience (UX) • Allow users to customize the user experience …able to document all forms of learning • Store and archive artifacts and credentials outside LMS
  9. Final Thought…Why Now? Would have this approach been possible or even worked in 2004?
  10. How might a Next Generation LMS be Organized?
  11. Unbundling the Learning Management System Learning Services – Underlying technical specifications and technologies which form the “glue” that connects tools and apps into a cohesive learning environment. Learning Devices – Support core teaching and learning capabilities (Gradebook, Test Engine, Learning App Builder) Learning Apps – Applications which users can build, install, modify and share on their own.
  12. Layers of a Next Generation Learning Environment Personal Learning Application – Allows user to document, control and share their own learning and teaching experiences. Institutional Learning Environment – Enterprise- level platform deployed by an institution to support their teaching and learning mission. Global Learning Cloud – Shared-services environment hosted outside of the institution to support inter-institutional collaboration and sharing.

  1. For the last 15 – 20 years the LMS market has been primarily focused on the Monolithic LMS model…that being the idea that we should build all of the tools and capabilities instructors and learners will ever need into one large enterprise system. Myself and I think many others are now starting to wonder if this is the right model for the next 10 – 20 years?
  2. It has provided us with enterprise systems that we can run at scale very reliably, safely and securely…
  3. But there has also been a downside as it has driven us towards generalization and standardization of the tools and capabilities that our teachers and learners have access to…which again, is not necessarily a bad thing as this “one size fits all” model is much easier to…
  4. …we need to seize the moment and build it for them!
