Ideas to consider about the CMS (Course Management System) concept and the alternatives — revealing issues related to the roles of educational institutions, artificial time constraints, assessment, etc.

Is it possible that (as the Mott and Wiley article suggests) “the persistence and perpetuation of the CMS paradigm is resulting in a missed opportunity of epic proportions…. instructors and institutions are essentially making the old, content-centric paradigm more efficient, but leaving it largely unchallenged and unquestioned.”

And I can’t help but add a link to a presentation I watched online yesterday as well, from the K-12 perspective:
