New LMS, New Approach, Coursekit Targets Individual Faculty not Institutions

2011-11-30 SNAG-01Trying to interest higher ed institutions with yet another LMS from a small startup, and go up against the current LMS giants like Blackboard, is obviously a crazy approach. Quite sensibly Coursekit, with an LMS user experience deliberately modelled on Facebook for simplicity and a low learning curve, is targeting individual faculty. Coursekit is free for individual course instructors to use and offers the basic LMS features of discussions, grading, teaching resources, calendar and an in-course Facebook-like community.

Shorn of the grading feature Coursekit looks to be very useful for committees, working group, research projects and support tasks as well.
