Mrs Boey's blog - school teacher

I stumbled on this blog by a school teacher who uses it with her students to provide links to useful learning resources and to remind them of deadlines and such. A simple, yet interesting use of the blog. I wonder if all her students like it.

Does LMS have a future?

Sometime in 2008 it suddenly hit me. It can very well be that after a decade of serving students so well the LMS may no longer be the best platform to support learning. A couple of months later, I read a piece of article on the LMS declining in popularity. And now the video below.

I think something like Ning will do a better job in supporting learning. Too bad it isn't free for all educators. Only North American educators will benefit from Pearson sponsorship.

Are we ready? How or why not? View Steve's slides below:
