Beyond the LMS

Continuing my theme of process before technology, here is a post from Godfrey Parkin on elearning and the ubiquitous LMS:

Our move from classroom learning to e-learning was less like a move from pony-express to e-mail, than it was from pony-express to bicycle courier.
Learning software vendors still doggedly pursue their vision of reusable learning objects that integrate via a central standards-conformant LMS. Meanwhile, trainers who really want to encourage experience-sharing and dynamic learner-created content are scrambling to understand blogging, RSS, and peer-to-peer networks.

Many LMS vendors don?¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢t ?¢‚Ǩ?ìget?¢‚Ǩ¬ù learning. Can it really be that they don?¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢t ?¢‚Ǩ?ìget?¢‚Ǩ¬ù the internet either? Are they so afraid of being non-intermediated that they will fight real progress every step of the way or are they about to help us evolve?
