Mott and Wiley Quote

As a student or instructor in Higher Ed institutions today, it is almost inevitable that learning management systems such as Blackboard or Moodle will play a key role in the learning and teaching experience. But is there a problem with using a single, centralized system to manage learning? David Wiley and Jon Mott argue that there are certain limitations to such centralized systems, including:

  • the perpetuation of the industrial age paradigm of learning;
  • privileging the role of the instructor at the expense of the learner; and,
  • limiting the power of the network effect in learning.

Join the ID live team this week as we discuss the practical implications of using such a system and whether we agree with these statements.
