LMS reminders

Posted on: December 6, 2020

This tweet reminded me about an old rallying cry of mine: An LMS is not about learning, management, or students.

It is about administration and control. It about locking in clients. It is about getting access to user data and behaviour.

Intrepid educators can finds ways to creatively work around or even within an LMS. But they only perpetuate its use by doing so.

The only way to break out of the system is to work outside it. This is not only possible, it is also a richer experience that mirrors the realities outside a walled garden.

ūüĆĚ: If you’re gonna blog why not tweet it out instead of linking it to basically a twitlonger? Anyway, ratio.
