Evolving from “the” LMS to a Digital Learning Ecosystem: Reflections from Learning Impact 2015


A big topic of conversation at this year’s Learning Impact Conference was the digital ecosystem. There seems to be a great deal of consensus around using interoperability standards to pull content together, but I think we don’t think enough about using interoperability standards to pull systems together. Tim Beekman said that “the LMS” should be a combination of products offering the services K-12 needs. This idea really resonated with me, and I think as my district moves forward we should be looking at the services we need rather than the products that we need.
