Configuring the Structure and Administration of Learning Management
Dealtry, Richard
Journal of Workplace Learning, v17 n7 p467-477 2005
Purpose: Experience shows that there are problems arising from the implementation of learning management systems (LMS). Indications are that they are too e-learning technology driven, emphasising the virtual component and neglecting the precursory development of a vibrant and committed formal learning organisation culture and infrastructure. This article aims to investigate the benefits of applying a constructivist methodology in the implementation of new LMS. Design/methodology/approach: This article is a reflective assessment on the benefits of applying a constructivist methodology when designing and implementing strategic new learning and knowledge-based organisation development investments. Findings: The paper reveals a corporate strategic learning management solution (SLMS) approach which is synthesised out of a successful macro-educational intervention in the UK; that of the Foundation Degree Forward (fdf) initiative. Originality/value: This process involves using a holistic stakeholder approach that connects with all the management, resourcing and underlying organisational activities which are essential for the creation of a well managed, cohesive and sustainable strategic learning intervention.
