Important Things to Consider when Evaluating an LMS

Before committing to a new learning management system, or LMS, schools and districts have some serious homework to do. Ensuring that a prospective LMS aligns with institutional goals, technology infrastructure, and the requirements of an entire learning community—from teachers and administrators to students and parents—will increase the likelihood of a successful implementation, and ultimately, improve teaching and learning. A hastily chosen LMS, on the other hand, may inhibit technology adoption, fragment users, and diminish the return on investment.

Learner Culture and New Digital Pedagogies

Digital pedagogy starts with learning at its center, not tools or technologies. The best digital tools inspire us, often to use them in ways the designer couldn’t anticipate.
