  • 5. Activity 2: Brainstorm online Facilitator creates an online common space  http://titanpad.com/WOyYy8R4Tm Facilitator seeds the space with general features of LMS from participants We create and share Tiny URL of that space  http://tinyurl.com/diylms12 We form groups according to features Each group develops ONE aspect of the document We discuss each other’s ideas (something about chickens)Vance Stevens TESOL Arabia 2012
  • 6. Siemens’s features of good LMS part 1From: http://www.elearnspace.org/Articles/lms.htm Have a place for learner expression (blog/portfolio) Have a place for content interaction (LMS have this) Have a place to connect with other learners (discussion forum - LMS have this) Have a place to connect the thoughts of other learners in a personal, meaningful way - i.e. using RSS and then brought back into the "learner expression tool“ Have a place to dialogue with the instructor (email, VoIP, etc. - webct has some of this)Vance Stevens TESOL Arabia 2012
  • 7. Siemens’s features of good LMS part 1 Have a place to dialogue with gurus (apprentice) - the heart of online communities is the mess of varying skills and expertise. Gurus are people currently in industry or established practitioners of the organizing theme of the community. LMS limit the interaction to learner and instructor. Have a place for learning artifacts of those whove gone before - i.e. content management capabilities accessible and managed by the learner. Tools like Furl, del.icio.us are examples of personal knowledge management (PKM) tools. Be modularized so additional functionality and tools can be added based on what learners want or need...a bricolage of course tools - based on open standards - allow for incorporation of new approaches as needed.Vance Stevens TESOL Arabia 2012
