The Learning Management System (LMS) has long been the key underlying infrastructure for online, hybrid and even augmented face-to-face education.
With the global pandemic and rush to remote learning, the LMS became more important than ever, helping colleges and universities transition operations online without too many major breakdowns — a remarkable accomplishment for this long-maligned technology.
Yet at the same time, the experience and understanding of just what a “learning platform” is underwent another, parallel transformation with the rise of the synchronous video conferencing system. “Zoom U” may have been overdone with poor pedagogy, but the video platform is here to stay.
In this webinar, participants will explore:
- Long-term and recent trends in learning management systems
- Key changes over the past year and what they mean for the learning platforms of the future
- Changing expectations and their likely impacts
