LearningStudio and OpenClass End-Of-Life: Pearson is getting out of LMS market

Phil Hill, Neuropsychiatric Disease and Treatment, Feb 04, 2016
Commentary by Stephen Downes

With Pearson getting out of the LMS market, writes Hill, " there will now be more than 100 LMS changes triggered by this announcement... there are still some very large online programs that now have to select a new LMS." But maybe this is a good point for them to pause and think about whether they need to run a learning management system at all. Pearson says, "we believe our learning applications and services are truly 'where the learning happens.'" That's a bit misleading (and anyways, learning happens in the human brain) but the point is sound: you could remove most of the infrastructure of an LMS, and still support learning.
