  • 2.
    • Introduction and Acknowledgments
    • Research Procedure
    • Research Findings
    • Reflections on NG-CMS
  • 3. Background
    • Initiated as the research theme and project to follow up on current questions
    • Undertaken during Jafari sabbatical
    • Continuation of book project collaboration;
    Course Management Systems For Learning; beyond accidental pedagogy
  • 4. Research Procedure
    • Visited a select number of campuses for one to one and group focus interviews
      • Faculty Group ; adjuncts, instructors, and professors (59)
      • Student Group ; both on and off campus (52)
      • Admin/Professional Group : Provost, Deans, CIO, IT Directors/Managers, Technology Support, Instructional Support, Librarians (51)
  • 5. Research Procedure …
    • Seven campuses visited:
      • One- two day extensive visits
      • Two or three researchers attended each visit
      • Less than 10% of interviews conducted via video conferencing
  • 6. Research Procedure
    • Participating campuses for onsite interviews:
      • Bowling Green University
      • Eastern Michigan University
      • Pierce University
      • SUNY Brockport
      • California State University at Monterey Bay
      • University of Central Florida
      • University of Wyoming
  • 7. Research Funding
    • Thanks to the following institutions for supporting our travel expenses:
      • eCollege Inc.
      • ANGEL Learning Inc.
      • Bowling Green State University
      • California State University at Monterey Bay
      • University of Central Florida
  • 8. Research Questions
    • Characteristics and shortcomings of the current teaching and learning systems (more specifically the CMS platforms) being used on campus
    • Functional and technical requirements for the next generation of teaching and learning (beyond CMS)
  • 9. Consistent Findings
    • Compatibility issues:
        • Brower differences in look and feel
        • LMS: Not all tools within a system work well with different browser /platform/ versions of OS
        • Grade book (student + Faculty) limited in feature needs and usability
    • User Interface (Usability):
        • Navigation (student + faculty)
        • Room for improvement in intuitive aspects
  • 10. Findings
    • Proposed new ideas for the Next Generation of CMS.
    • Smart system
      • Intelligent agents (faculty & students ) have the system do some of the work for me.
    • Environment
      • Inclusive package (CMS + ePortfolio + SIS)
      • Archival and storage options
      • Share and acess outside of the course
    • Multi-modal Multimedia communication channels
      • Audio / Video (faculty) - use of audio or video to response to students email.
    • Mobile - New Types of Access (students)
      • Use of SMS to let me know about assignment due
  • 11.
    • A “learner centered” framework design
      • The system is technically designed around a person (learner) rather than a course or contents (CMS/LMS)
      • Support multiply roles beyond learning (career, professional life, retirement)
    NG-CMS Characteristics
  • 12.
    • A “smart” environment being able to think, reason, and act on behave of the person.
      • Intelligent agent acting as a classmate
      • Intelligent agent acting as a personal secretary, administrative assistant or helper
      • Intelligent agent acting as a subject mater expert
    NG-CMS Characteristics
  • 13.
    • Offer global “social networking” services for:
      • Collaborative learning, teaching, and research
      • Connecting, creating, sharing
      • Intellectual exchange / trade
    NG-CMS Characteristics
  • 14. NG-LMS: It looks like Web 2!
    • Connect
    • Create
    • Collaborate
    • Combine
    • Comment
    • Critique
  • 15. Next Generation Learning Environments
    • Social
    • Dynamic
    • Learner-centered
    • Umbrella of tools
    • Portfolio framework
