Whatever Happened to Course Management Systems?

Back in 2012, Jason Blanchard wrote an article for Edudemic about the problems with Course management systems (CMSs), such as Blackboard and Moodle. At that time, CMSs were centralized platforms that host software tools essential for online course instructors and students. Let’s be honest, 2010 was a long time ago, especially in the world of technology. So we’ve decided to update the Blanchard CMS article. Our goal was to revisit his concerns with the systems in use in 2010 and to see what, if anything has improved since then. What we found was that CMSs are really a platform of the past. They’ve all turned into larger, more powerful Learning Management Systems. (LMS). Let’s take a look at where CMSs started and how they morphed into LMSs.
