The LMOS project is the latest project entry to our Education Commons community. LMOS is an attempt to create a design for an abstract Java framework from which a Learning Management System (LMC) can be built. The framework will have well defined service layer centered on the portal that will help tool designers and integrators build highly useful tools. The system would built from the ground up to support inter-institutional computer resource sharing, interoperate seamlessly with campus IT integration systems, provide unprecedented faculty control over virtual class experiences, and present a consistent user-centric view of all data. The idea is emerging from leadership work being done at the State University of New York and aims to make use of existing components and services. I had a quick meeting with the SUNY guys at Educause, including Michael Feldstein who writes a really nice blog on e-learning called e-Literate. Community efforts like LMOS that promote inter-operable implementations while embracing open innovation for both open source and proprietary systems are an important direction for the campus of the future.
