Remember Connexions? I said about Connexions, a LO repository where content was under a Creative Commons License, that “what I think is really thrilling is the possibility of using these learning objects or modules and set up your own course” as in a puzzle.
And no, it is not yet another LMS, but an authoring tool:
LAMS is a revolutionary new tool for designing, managing and delivering online collaborative learning activities.
It provides teachers with a highly intuitive visual authoring environment for creating sequences of learning activities. These activities can include a range of individual tasks, small group work and whole class activities based on both content and collaboration.
And has a serious concern with e-learning standards and so.
Under this ICT4D blog point of view, the new thing is that this should make easier for some people to produce online content for e-learning or other purposes.
If you need to cite this article in a formal way (i.e. for bibliographical purposes) I dare suggest:
