In this final post of the mini series we'll explore the technologies available to help turn your face-to-face (F2F) class into an online course. The first post dealt with the preparatory planning steps that are essential to creating an online course and the second post dealt with the two most popular instructional design models, to help you model the flow and scope of the course. Obviously technology plays a huge role in translating your content into an online course. Learning management systems are software products that are designed to make compartmentalising, reinforcing, supporting and delivering online classes easy, and time efficient. Once you start discovering the many features of an LMS you will hopefully also find the process of converting your real-world course material into an online course easier. There is a small issue we need to briefly look at: Definitions. You will notice a host of acronyms once you start researching technologies to deliver your online course, two of them are LMS and LCMS. One is a Learning Management System (LMS) and the other Learning Content Management System (LCMS). In a very broad sense the difference is content. An LMS is the student-facing system that allows you to manage their submissions, grades and portfolios, while also scheduling and managing your role and instruction. An LCMS is a system that helps you to create and load the content into the LMS; it plays more of a back-end role. It is not crucial, but can be helpful if the LMS you choose has a content function as this will assist you in the conversion process and guarantee that the content you have created is perfectly suited to the LMS you plan on using.
