Next Generation Digital Learning Environment, or NGDLE, will have interoperability, personalization, analytics, advising, learning assessment, collaboration and accessibility and universal design. Still in development, the NGDLE concept is a one-stop-shop using a “Lego” approach. A variety of elements will be able to snap together on a in response to higher education’s frustration with Learning Management Systems (LMS). Sometimes referred to as “walled-gardens,” LMS focus on the administration of learning, rather than the learning itself. In contrast, NGDLE is a dynamic, interconnected environment of learners, instructors, tools and content. Users will be able to personalize their learning environment to make it work for their needs. NGDLE recognize that learners are both receivers and creators of content.
If your district is looking to upgrade their Student Information Systems (SIS) and LMS, remember NGDLE and envision the possibilities! See one in action.
