Lessons from LAMS: Experiences from Developing and Implementing a Learning Design system
James Dalziel, Director of LAMS, Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia

The Learning Activity Management System (LAMS) is a Learning Design system used by thousands of educators in schools and universities around the world and translated into 30 languages. LAMS is complemented by the LAMS Community, an online community of practice for educators and technical staff using LAMS, including a repository of 800 community-developed Learning Designs. LAMS is freely available as open source software, and LAMS Community designs are freely shared under Creative Commons licenses. This presentation will provide an overview of LAMS and the LAMS Community, including reflections on the progress of LAMS development. It will also consider the success and challenges of the concept of sharing Learning Designs, and prospects for future adoption.

James Dalziel is Professor of Learning Technology and the Director of the Macquarie E-Learning Centre Of Excellence (MELCOE) at Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia, and also a Director of the LAMS Foundation and LAMS international Pty Ltd. He is known internationally for his research into and development of innovations in e-learning, and technical standards. James is an author of the Cape Town Declaration on Open Education.
