10 Things to Consider Before Choosing an LMS So you know you want an LMS. Good. This article isn’t here to tell you why you need one, or why you should use one, this is a guide for anyone who already knows they want an LMS, just wants a guide for what to check for. Over the years I have spent many hours testing content and trying various different Learning Management Systems, and have even done some LMS (like) design work with Articulate Online. 1. There are 3 LMS standards of significance these days, AICC, SCORM 1.2 and SCORM 2004. A little history on the standards… The AICC standard was developed by the aviation industry in 1993 and has evolved a bit over the years, but remains pretty similar to its roots. The SCORM 1.2 standard was released in 2001 and is the most popular standard (in terms of usage) to date, and was actually developed by the department of defense. SCORM 2004 was released in 2004 (shocker huh?) There are other places where the earlier standards were just flat out missing something that should have been included.

CMS: How To Use This Site about good practices and sound policies that accelerate the effective adoption and use of technologies in teaching and learning. For more than a decade, WCET's EduTools website was a leading destination for educational technology decision makers. The independent reviews and side-by-side comparisons of educational technology products were used by colleges and universities of all sizes, higher education systems and other multi-campus service providers to expedite and streamline their internal processes for the review and evaluation of products, saving them time and duplicative effort. EduTools Matrix Many visitors to EduTools used the detailed matrix of LMS/CMS features, descriptions, and criteria as a tool in developing requests for proposals and evaluation requirements. EduTools was launched in 2001 with funding support from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.

LMS Selection You should prepare your RFP based upon your requirements. It is not necessary to indicate priorities of requirements, nor list them in any specific order, in the RFP itself so that each requirement is responded to equally. You should try to be as specific as possible about each requirement so that the LMS company can respond directly to your requirement rather than provide a general response. You should also include scenarios in your RFP. Describe very specific situations that you would envision the LMS/LCMS to accomodate. You also will need to request a proposed project plan for implementation based upon your criteria. Finally, provide a short response time for the RFP.
10 Tips To Effectively Use Social Media In Formal Learning We live in the era of social media and professionals of any level should not make the mistake to underestimate their power. We can easily understand why social media can be useful from a marketing point of view. What’s more interesting, however, is to see how social can be effectively used in formal learning. Learning In A Social Orbit Social media are getting quite popular in eLearning, as well as in traditional classrooms and workshops. The advantages are many and instructors cannot afford to ignore them: multiple-level interaction, reduce or elimination of classroom time, boost participation and collaboration, new job opportunities, opportunities for the development of online communities consisting of people with common training experiences, and so many more. So, let’s see how we can increase the effectiveness and longevity of formal learning, stimulate the engagement of learners, and enhance the social aspects of learning through the use of social media.

Angel vs Moodle vs Sakai vs Blackboard – which LMS? « Juliaitani’s Blog Talking about Learning Management System (LMS) or Content Management System (CMS) in higher education is a bit of a hit in a glass wall. You see where you want to go but for some reason you can’t reach a common point. Many popular LMS / CMS today offer what it seems to be a similar gamut of features and tools. The Instructional Technology Council (ITC) published a survey on elearning at Community Colleges page demonstrating WebCT and Blackboard still leading stats in LMS costumers in 2007. There are two levels of expectations that I believe at some point they coincide but at many other instances they grow apart greatly. Faculty = non-tech savvies expect simplicity; more experienced online members expect a greater range of possibilities; some others just need a usable gradebook and better tools to “control” their students’ performance. Institutional = assessment numbers that bring great stats, a good support plan in case of external hosting (including ticket responses of 1 hr max)…
