Kluging: An LMS Alternative

Web Tools for Learners

I confess I’m ambivalent about Learning Management Systems such as WebCT ad Desire2Learn. (I’m I’m not at all ambivalent about Content Management Systems, such as WordPress - I am an enthusiastic user.) The distinction is that an LMS is a container for class work -. Learning Management System is a broad term used for a wide range of systems that organize and provide access to online learning services for students, teachers, and administrators.

E-Learning: A worldwide perspective

eLearning 24-7

Well, I have seen a lot with Blackboard, especially in Western Europe – partially because the two other big players Desire2Learn and Instructure, are not marketing themselves in Western Europe and definitely not the rest of the world. A few days ago, I mentioned in my Linkedin group that I was reading the Himalayan Times which had an article about digital technologies and e-learning with education in Nepal. Think about that for a moment, Nepal.

Live classroom polling without clickers?

E-Learning Acupuncture

For example, in this poll, if you want to vote for Desire2Learn then write a text message to 32075 which contains this text "cast 29368". Almost everybody these days has a cellphone - especially students! So a company called Poll Everywhere has decided to deploy an Audience Response System (aka, clickers) by using text messaging on a cellphone instead of a wireless clicker transmitter.

Review of #ASTD2014 International Conference and Expo

eLearning 24-7

For example, Desire2Learn and Blackboard were there, Instructure was missing, along with many other well known education focused systems. If you attended last week’s show in Washington D.C., you probably left feeling one of the following. Exhausted, but thrilled at everything you attended/saw. Exhausted and hungry – how can you run out of lunches on day one? Thrilled.

SCORM and Learning Object hype

eLearning Evangelist

TeacherLine then decided to use Desire2Learn. I thought the front page story in eSchoolNews on SCORM by Robert Brumfield was interesting, but I found it reflected the hype that I see going on in the education community. I'd like to see an article written with a bit more caution in the message. I've been watching this concept develop since the early days of the IMS. And I was initially taken with the idea as well.
