Social Awareness in the iHelp Courses Learning Content Management System

  title={Social Awareness in the iHelp Courses Learning Content Management System},
  author={Christopher A. Brooks and Collene Hansen and Jim E. Greer},
Learning content management systems (LCMS) are web-based elearning applications that allow an instructor to deliver standards-based learning content to communities of learners. Despite the high popularity of these systems, they tend to have minimal collaborative navigation and awareness features, and students often find themselves learning in a vacuum without a sense of what the rest of the learning community is doing. This paper outlines a number of the awareness features built into our LCMS… Expand
