Does your LMS Resemble an Old Outdated Carnival Fun House?

replace-your-legacy-LMS-blog

Remember when the fun house used to be fun? In its day, the fun house was the biggest sensation at the carnival. Visitors of all ages came driven by the sensory overload experience of pulsating lights, loud music, strange sights and sounds. Designed to be a fun and thrilling experience, there were mirrors to distort your reflection, spinning disks, moving floors, and optical illusions, and other delights that induced dizziness and excitement, and laughter. And there were tunnels with strobe lights, sound effects, and scary surprises hiding around each corner that led to mazes with dead ends that could make it difficult to find your way out. 

Funny thing is that one summer, the fun house was relegated from the main attraction to the back of the lot, replaced by new action attractions like the Tilt-a-Wheel and the Graviton. These new modern rides spun us around quickly, wildly, defying gravity, and raised the bar on excitement. And, suddenly, we had no interest in going back to the traditional fun house. Suddenly, the fun house was old, disjointed, and outdated, and obviously held up with borrowed and repurposed features and props. The sensory overload sensation that brought us joy and excitement now elicited headaches and boredom. 

Conventional learning platforms can seem a lot like the old carnival fun house. There's a few reasons for that. one, onventional platforms weren't created for today's modern learner and two, technology has become an integral part of our daily lives. So we expect more and it shades the way we perceive the older LMS where the user experience is typically outdated, antiquated, and not very fun to navigate. It doesn't foster collaboration, communication, and community, and conventional LMS typically doesn't integrate well or play well with other systems.

Modern LMSs make learning more interactive, immersive, and enjoyable than ever before. After experiencing the difference with advanced innovations like automation, AI, gamification, and social learning, it seems highly unlikely that modern learners would opt to return to a conventional LMS.
