IEEE Internet Computing Special Issue on Distance Learning
The learning management system (LMS) has dominated Internet-based education
for the past two decades. However, the traditional LMS is failing to keep pace
with advances in Internet technologies and social interactions online. To support
technological diversity, current frameworks such as the E-Learning Framework
(ELF), the IMS Abstract Framework, and the Open Knowledge Initiative (OKI)
have defined the initial steps toward service-oriented e-learning platforms. Nextgeneration
platforms will be based on these service-oriented visions. Here, the
authors discuss LMS evolution and present core challenges that must be addressed
to achieve information interoperability in next-generation e-learning platforms.
