Mobile Learning. The LMS space is a major culprit here, because there are vendors who offer mobile learning management systems, or m-learning solutions within their LMS.  True, smartphones are here to stay, and they are  wonderful for a lot of amazing things, but from a true m-learning standpoint, I just do not see the engaging interactive value here, in comparison to other mobile devices.
