The “free thought” content platform is back.
OpenLMS is leading the re-launch of E-Learn Magazine, a publication that fostered a community of thoughtful debate, perspectives and actionable tips for the LMS community. Only this time, the effort is bolder.
120 articles in English and Spanish reflecting global perspectives in the form of “op-eds, interviews, infographics, and customer snapshots,” resulting from a careful look at common concerns and general topics of interest. The current COVID-19 pandemic and their ongoing global effects on elearning are imminent. Beyond that, issues of engagement, integrity, learning analytics and student-centered learning will continue to be critical issues for educators, and the basis for ongoing coverage and debate to be found at e-learn.
For Phill Miller, Managing Director of OpenLMS, the launch calls for a celebration. But the magazine itself is a celebration itself. A recognition to thoughtful and hard-working people in the space. He shared some thoughts on his blog:
«We work in an industry where millions of teachers, trainers, professors, and lecturers work tirelessly to help our children thrive and our societies evolve. But no one is making commercials about them, and they don’t receive sponsorship dollars or see their name in lights. In some small way, we want to change that. Not just to celebrate what academic technologists are doing because it’s great on its own, but because we believe that telling these stories will inspire others to do the same thing, and creating a community around eLearning will help everyone do it better.» — Phill Miller, OpenLMS
