Web 2.0 tools are of great value for various e-learning scenarios, however, do they make the centralizes and managed learning management system (LMS) at the universities irrelevant? I don't think so. In this talk I will give you some hints why the LMS will remain the future base of e-learning in universities.

This talk was a part of a keynote speech I made with Andrea Back with the title: "Do LMS have a Future? A Conversation between Criticism and Defense of today's LMS"
