Learning Management Systems of the Future: A Theoretical Framework and Design

Logo for Learning Management Systems of the Future: A Theoretical Framework and Design
While American institutions of higher education still lead the world in quality of instruction, research and service, certain trends are challenging their future. Immediate attention to resolving these issues is necessary if the American university is going to maintain world leadership in the foreseeable future. The theory of transactional distance is put forward as a roadmap for changing the industrial system of education to a post-industrial one in which each learner receives differential... More

This is an open journal article published by MERLOT's Journal of Online Learning and Teaching in June 2008 (Vol. 4, No. 2).

 

The paper presents an ambitious vision. I would enjoy elaboration on the components of the education management system offered within this vision and a clear connection betwee each component and its roots in the literature.

 

I think the article's greatest potential use, particularly given the 3.5 years since its publication, would be in stimulating discussions or creating projects centered on the suggested components of the education management system.

 

I do plan to consider how some of the concepts and components listed in the article align with my own research interests related to instructional design and threaded discussions.
