thanks for your response. It appears we may not be on the same page here, so I will elaborate, sorry about that. I am not going to spell out the affordances of one LMS over another here, we have enough threads in this forum that do so.
Now, what were my take aways from that clip?
I am a teacher surfing the net to find out about an LMS....got a bit of cash in the pot put aside for ICT development across my institution-we are pretending Colin OK
Right, so my take away involves three things...and some more things (edit!)...
1. the learner could explain the purpose behind the features and functionality of the LMS she engages with, for her learning development
2. the learner was tiptop coherent with regards to the related language
3. the learner expressed motivation for her engagement
4. the learner was tickled pink about the M-learning affordance
5. the learner will chat with her peers about her knowledge of the LMS she uses for learning about stuff-she can interact with, by just login-in she can even edit stuff!
6. this is not about asking an LMS to do stuff-nice concept Colin....but an LMS has tin ears
7. tis is about how a product is presented, albeit in the form of escaping into the wild/OR within a dev forum-and I say that with the utmost respect...if BB have not put this together....user (teacher and learner endorsement- off their own-back....well does it get any better than that!
8. yes a focus on admins, devs and what not is so important as is a focus on teachers' needs
9. My bet...and I will bet you an ice-cream with all the trimmings- is that the likes of canvas, Bb, and other products have now switched their telescopic lens onto 'learning' the user as learner....that is the starter for ten Colin
10. How that connects seamlessly across admins, devs and teachers is essential across the world of LMSs for online/blended L&T
Finally, that learner was aged 6/7! The next generation Colin....they know far more than we credit them for-the next LMs builders eh!
