Distributed learning has become a mainstay of course delivery for many if not most universities. However, the course management systems used to deliver academic programs have been designed as information communication tools that manage teaching rather than interactive and collaborative tools that support learning. This panel presents the findings of three experts in next generation e-learning systems who have identified functionalities that must be developed if systems are to support relevant and deep learning in distributed learning. Attendees will share their own understanding of issues related to systems architecture, pedagogical capabilities, and user needs and suggest strategies for capturing and examining such issues in an ever changing environment.
