Envisioning the Post-LMS Era: The Open Learning Network

Jonathan Mott, EDUCAUSE Quarterly, Mar 04, 2010
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Leigh Blackall points to this article on the post-LMS era published in EDUCAUSE Quarterly. It's a good article and manages to capture the emergence of the Personal Learning Environment (PLE), an open learning network, and the rest of it. Blackall writes, "I was sad to see my name not in the references, perhaps 2005 was too long ago! Perhaps blog posts don't rate, perhaps its just me..." and links to a long list of his posts where substantially the same argument is made. But I wouldn't feel too bad, Leigh - there's no reference to any of my work in their either. That's what academia does, though. It whitewashes the original work and presents it as a genuine made-in-the-USA "discovery" with corporate-friendly references, patents to follow, no doubt.
