Norway has had great success in rolling out learning management systems at the country’s universities. So it may come as a surprise that Thorleif Hallén from Norwegian Uninett announced the death of LMS in his presentation at the e-learning track of the NORDUnet conference.
But simultaneously he welcomed the LMS successor, the digital learning platform. According to Hallén, LMS has focused too much on management and too little on learning, and lacking flexibility and possibilities of data flow between courses etc.
A digital learning platform is now under way in Norway, and Uninett is preparing procurement of this platform for 21 colleges and universities.
