The evolution in LMS generally is toward more powerful, well-integrated feature sets. It is anticipated that new features will continue to proliferate, and assessment capabilities will continue to evolve. It remains to be seen if advances in the organization and presentation of learning resources and the interface to new capabilities will reign in the increasing complexity of use that feature proliferation entails. The systems described here that are based upon visual representations of knowledge such as concept maps, have relatively more clearly identifiable pedagogical underpinnings.

Design ideas from tools based upon visual representations might be integrated with these market leading systems to produce a new generation of tools to support distance learning. Some representative systems from these categories are discussed next. Learning Management Systems A number of competing LMSs are in use in the United States today. These include WebCT, Desire2Learn, and Sakai. These systems have attained substantial market share with modest differentiation among their basic capabilities.

The assignment capability supports individual or group assignments that are submitted online. As in other software suites, discussion threads can be graded as part of a participation component of the course. Grades are maintained in a spreadsheetlike format. WebCT provides capabilities to form and manage groups, to set up private threaded discussions for them, and to manage group grades. Event tracking of student interactions with WebCT include: the number of mail messages read, accesses to the calendar, the number of course resources the student has accessed, the number of assessments and assignments started and completed, and total time spent on them.
