Intro to Pearson’s OpenClass

Wolfgang Greller, Reflections on the Knowledge Society, Nov 10, 2011
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Short summary of an introductory webinar hosted by Pearson to introduce its new cloud-based OpenClass learning management system (LMS). Worlfgang Greller relates assurances by Pearson that users will not be required to purchase Pearson textbooks. But questions on the enterprise nature of the tool - whether it would support LDAP-based logins, for example - were not clearly ansered. Greller writes, "My impression was that the tool, or at least the webinar demo, was very much geared toward individual teachers deciding to hop into the cloud with their classes." And he notes, "This is not normally permissible in institutions."
