Soimething I've argued for a long time: "The genetic weakness of the contemporary CMS stems from its uncritical acceptance of the traditional features of the classroom model." The author proposes an alternative to the traditional LMS, "a capabilities approach... The learner-centered capabilities are (1) a critical thinking capability, (2) a self-confidence capability, (3) a peer-learning capability, and (4) a knowledge management capability. The CMS curricular capabilities are (1) a discovery-based learning capability, (2) a 360 degree out-of-the-course capability, (3) a knowledge asset capability, and (4) a teach-to-learn capability."
