ConVerge11 Day 2: Beyond LMS. Ian Knox

Great start to a workshop - free USB stick with presentation!!!!

Social Networking in primary schools in US is good, high schools not so good, higher ed.... oh well!

LMSs - avoid awful templates. They crush teacher creativity!!!! Also issues when people don't have access after course finishes - highlights need to keep previous versions with dates.

Much of his comments highlights misuse of LMS, not necessarily limitations of LMS per se.

Social learning is what people do together, not what you make them do - gold quote



In the end - an LMS has its limits but I think if you design it well, it is far more flexible that this workshop presented. Would love Julian Ridden to have responded.
