Marching toward release of an open learning system…

Posted by bryanzug - 2007/09/05

I’ve been marching busily during recent months toward release of a 200+ lesson web based training system for the new phase of a clinical information system at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford.

Hope to release details soon on the site so those of you in the elearning space can take a look.

The architecture of the thing should be very interesting to those of you who lament with me how learning management systems (LMS’s) too often function as walled gardens — and cut off discoverability and content re-use as a result.

Stay tuned for the hard launch.

  1. Looking forward to seeing the architecture :-)

  2. Discoverability, yes, but content re-use? I’ve never seen or heard of a practical implementation of it that actually works.

    I’ve designed systems that do re-use reasonably well at a high level — I think it is more about your content requirements than your system architecture — if your content requirement dictate no re-use for various audiences/roles, then it’s sort of a non-starter.
