Is the LMS Dead?

For better or worse, every person in education concerned with teaching and learning has run into the the learning management system (LMS), and nearly every new startup has had to figure out whether to integrate or compete with the LMS.

The question is whether the LMS is dead -- whether it's a nuisance that gets in the way or whether it still has relevance in modern teaching and learning. This panel will debate that question and more from deep thinkers in k-12 and higher ed.
