Struggling with a competitive strategy for your Learning Management System (LMS)? New technologies are enabling content delivery tied to your distance courses across a wide array of media, creating a fabric of connections that can be leveraged to deliver educational content. Further, by and large these delivery channels are free for you and free for your students. This emerging 'Learning Fabric' extends well beyond an off the shelf LMS, and begins to integrate with students life styles and daily activities in a much more seamless way. The emerging trend, enabled by industry leaders like Google, Sony, Apple, and many others, enables the delivery of on demand curriculum content through a variety of technologies including your phone, computer, gaming system, cable box, and even newer HDTV’s.
DL 2.0 is going to look a lot less like reading a book or sitting in front of a computer and a lot more like everything else we do, available when and where we want it in the format that we want it in. This presentation serves as an industry technology primer for emerging technologies and trend that will start to take center stage within the next 12 to 18 months.
