ABED Congress. Post #2: Integration of the daily life with LMSs

With Reinaldo Portal and Martin Dougiamas, founder & CEO of Moodle. We had the chance to work together about the integration of IMS Learning Design and standardized educational resources in Moodle, back in 2004-2005

Current Learning Management Systems (in fact, since the beginning of these tools) try to build a meeting place to provide centralized services to users (i.e. students, teachers, tutors, professors, admin staff, etc.)


 

If we use Sakai, Moodle, Claroline, Blackboard, Canvas or anything else in the market, all of them present similar facilities, like email, ftp, resources, IRC, grades, fora and so on. When the LMS vision started (I designed corporate LMS in 1995, so at least, 20 years ago), this goes the right and logical approach to take.

Modern LMSs should go to the service aggregation model under a middleware paradigm, so that the integration of external tools into the same user model is smooth and useful
