Learning Management Technologies: Enterprise System or Consumer Good?
Nov 5th, 2009
2:20 PM - 3:10 PM
Korbel Ballroom 3C
This session will compare and contrast approaches in the use of learning management technologies in higher education: an enterprise model where a learning management system is centrally provided versus a consumer model where faculty are encouraged to use a wide variety of available Web 2.0 tools (blogs, Facebook, Twitter). Two presenters with expertise on both sides of the issue will discuss the relative merits of each model. They will also illuminate a shared challenge: the "humanware" (people helping people) investments that support the use of these technologies by faculty on campus are critical to their success.
