LMS (like my status) for LMS (learning management systems)
“Virtual” classroom or “Virtually used LMS” classroom
Virtually every college and university in the United States uses a learning management system, or LMS. Whether they choose to use Blackboard, Moodle, Desire2Learn, or one of the many other options available, there isn’t one school that doesn’t use a LMS. And this isn’t a bad thing- Learning management system supply and pull together resources so that students know about their homework, can read up on future assignments, and can even complete some assignments online. All that is possible, under the assumption that the teacher is even using the LMS.
Notice I said that every school seems to have an LMS; I can say from experience that many teachers just don’t bother with them. I took 4 classes this last semester and only two of them used my university’s LMS of choice: Blackboard. In one class, I was forced to use Blackboard, because it was an online class. The other class where Blackboard was being used was Geometry. However, I never once used it other than to download the syllabus for the class. My school doesn’t really force the use of Blackboard; many of my friends go to schools that do. Unfortunately for schools, students, maybe even more than teachers, just aren’t using the LMS that is available.
Could Facebook be a better way!!
