Learning Technologies Beyond the Walled Garden

Often we call the learning management system the “walled garden” as it requires a password and login and often has a limited set of interactions and collaborations you can do for learner engagement. Often we need to move beyond the LMS to engage learners in collaborative, group, and engaging learning experiences. This handout outlines the suite of learning technologies that exist for NIC instructors and students, along with suggestions for moving beyond the institution to using web tools and platforms.
