Learning Design using Learning Activity Management System (LAMS)

If you consider the “Continuum of Shift” applied to learning management systems, at one end you have a content centric tool like Blackboard, then you find Moodle in the middle, and at the other activity centric end you have LAMS being used for interactive learning sequences and constructivist design in teaching. LAMS provides teachers with a highly intuitive visual authoring environment for creating sequences of learning activities. These activities can include a range of individual tasks, small group work and whole class activities based on both content and collaboration. I believe this is the most useful tool for developing strong pedagogy in learning design we have available. When I  tell people in workshops “it is Learning Design, not for dummies, but time strapped academics”. I usually have their attention.
