Illogical – I often see systems that add features that seem as though they tossed a bunch of ideas on a wall and whatever stuck up there, went into their platform. True, people are selecting open source systems, and for the majority of them, it is Moodle. The LMS market is strong.

Social Learning and LMSs Marketplace

eLearning 24-7

When so many potential customers are seeing the advantages of open source, creating their own learning or VLE portals or seeing the value of various social media types and incorporating them into some type of social learning community, the “do nothing&# spin is well, a time warp into the past. Time for these vendors to wake up, or see your audience share disappear. Mashups and APIs (again, some people in the social media space, see them as social media types).

eLearning 24-7

I want to make something very clear – Moodle and other open source LMSs, Learning Portals, CMSs, etc. You can either have all open, which many companies do not want, or are stuck with course keys and other additional non-necessary steps. APIs and mashups – which is really can expand Moodle to the next level of learning. Moodle and some other open source LMS/LCMS solutions are not really “out of the box” solutions.

Computers, Learning Professionals, and their Roles in Curation

The Learning Circuits

Let's back up a second though; perhaps saying the definition of curator has expanded isn't accurate, as it implies expanding a single definition to include a broader group. Mashups : Merging two or more unrelated pieces of content to form a new message. For more advanced forms of curation like mashups and timelines, the need for human interpretation is even more critical.

eLearning 24-7
