The Battle of the LMSs
The Battle of the LMSs is a fun event being held at the 2022 ASCILITE conference. Through a series of challenges, harnessing the expertise of Australasia’s best educators, learning designers and education technologists, we will answer the age-old question – Which is the best LMS?
In the lead-up to the conference, we are seeking to find the LMS champions for the battle through a pre-conference design challenge. The pre-conference challenge is open to anyone attending the ASCILITE 2022 conference in person or online. If you do this as a team, at least one member of the team must be registered for the conference.
You have just over one week to design a short learning activity in the LMS of your choice and upload a screencast video describing your design and the decisions that you made. See details of the brief for the activity in the TELedvisors’ post ‘Are you the ultimate LMS designer?’
The design videos will be shared via Twitter and in other ASCILITE/ TELedvisor channels and judged by interested members of the public, particularly the ed. design and ed. tech community. Voters can rate the designs on:
- How well does the learning design create opportunities for student learning?
- How well does the learning design encourage student collaboration?
- To what extent are the materials, design and instructions accessible, diverse and inclusive?
- How creative, innovative or interesting is the use of the available technologies?
- How easy would it be to repeat, sustain and/or share the design?
Prizes will be given for the best submission in each of these categories.
The finalists from this challenge will then compete in real time during the live conference panel session to be crowned The Ultimate LMS Designer.
Upload video by 12:00 pm (midday AEDT) on Tuesday 29 November 2022. Cast votes until 9 am AEDT on Tuesday 6 December.
