Getting beyond centralized technologies in higher education – Ed-Media Symposium

This post by Bryan Alexander, discusses a recent Ed-Media Symposium on “Getting beyond centralized technologies in higher education”. There is some good analysis from Scott Wilson about the historial use of centralised systems by institutions and some great discussions in general about why we should be trying utilise the web in elearning rather than LMS’s.

I especially liked the reference to the phrase “digital taxidermists” — which describes “the unfortunate tendency of educators to suck the life out of online applications and communities”.
