Social Software: E-learning Beyond Learning Management Systems

Christian Dalsgaard, European Journal of Open, Distance, e-learning, Sept 01, 2006
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Dave Cormier links to this article, pleased to find a reference to his own work in the academic paper. I'm pleased to, because it is good to see the recognition, even in academic writing, of the original work being done in the field. The article argues (as have we, for a while), "it is necessary to move e-learning beyond learning management systems and engage students in an active use of the web as a resource for their self-governed, problem-based and collaborative activities." And, following people like Cormier and others, "The purpose of the article is to discuss the potential of social software to move e-learning beyond learning management systems."
