The Learning Management System has been with us for just 10 years or so, and yet for many it is now seen as the core system required for delivering e-learning in an organisation.

I interrupt my series of postings on Collaboration Platforms, to talk a little about the stages of Workplace Learnng
Last week we shared our visions on using Google services (such as Analytics) as an alternative to expensive LMS software ( link ). Judging from the many responses, re-blogs and re-tweets we received, this topic struck a vibe in the e-Learning community. Some readers (amongst which George Aston) wonder how you can determine which users have actually passed the courses.
Erik Qualman’s socialmedia revolution video has been updated . He starts by asking: “Is social media a fad? Or the biggest shift since the industrial revolution?”.
In January I released the first version of my State of Workplace Learning Today piece, and have tinkered with it over the last few months. I am giving two big presentations this week about it (one as a keynote speaker at the ILTA, EdTech 2010 conference in Athlone, Ireland which I hope I am going to make as the volcanic cloud is closing British and Irish airspace again today) so I thought I would update it with some of the resources I have been mentioning here on this blog.
En el marco del presente seminario , y como miembro de la mesa POSIBILIDADES Y BARRERAS DEL USO DE LOS BLOGS EN LA FORMACIÓN , me corresponde introducir el tema: Del Blog al PLE y a las Redes Sociales: hacia un Entorno de Aprendizaje Personal y autogestionado.
Today’s youth are growing up in a world very different from that of their teachers or parents. Ubiquitous access to social media, tools and knowledge resources is taken for granted, while passive teacher-directed work often dominates life at school. In fact, the impossibility of controlling the use of mobile devices has led some schools to prohibit their use.
Wendy y Alex Drexler, inspirados por los vídeos de Lee LeFever y Common Craft [realmente más por el tono que por la técnica], crearon hace un par de años un vídeo para explicar, atendiendo a las bases del conectivismo, las habilidades que un/a estudiante del siglo XXI debería tener. Wendy Drexler formó parte de uno de los primeros MOOC de Siemens y Downes , el CCK08 a finales de 2008, y tras su participación en el mismo decidió elaborar un vídeo sobre los nuevos aprendizajes en red.
OK, so here’s the deal – if learning is work and work is learning, why is organizational learning controlled by a learning management systems (LMS) that isn’t connected to the work being done in the enterprise? Learning is no longer what you do before you go to work, never having to learn anything else in order to do your job.

When I survey the landscape of educational tools, I come to the following conclusion: Elgg is the most important tool, currently available, in shaping the future of learning.
Jon Mott recently published an article in EDUCAUSE Quarterly on Envisioning the Post-LMS Era . Jim Groom captures the reactions of individuals who have been exploring the link between learning management systems and personal learning environments. There is a sense – and I’ll admit I felt it as well in reading the article – that many long-time contributors to the discussion were not referenced in the article.
Yesterday I wrote a posting about the future of the LMS , and in particular about moving towards a more collaborative approach to learning and working in an organisation- and one which supports the big picture of "learning", rather than the tiny, 20% of learning, that takes place in classrooms or online courses. Since the posting went live early yesterday morning, there have been thousands of hits on my blog - which has convinced me that this topic has hit a major nerve!
