      A paper by Jon Mott and David Wiley
      Open for Learning: The CMS and the Open Learning Network

      Abstract

      The course management system (CMS) reinforces the status quo and
      hinders substantial teaching and learning innovation in higher
      education. It does so by imposing artificial time limits on learner
      access to course content and other learners, privileging the role of
      the instructor at the expense of the learner, and limiting the power
      of the network effect in the learning process. The open learning
      network (OLN)—a hybrid of the CMS and the personal learning
      environment (PLE)—is proposed as an alternative learning technology
      environment with the potential to leverage the affordances of the Web
      to dramatically improve learning.
