Answer: What are the most relevant features offered within an LMS? Which features directly relate to effective online instruction? How might you use these features in the online classroom environment?
The most relevant features would have to be all mentioned in the lesson. This is the basics to a good LMS. Anything else would be a bonus. Course Content and LOR would directly relate to effective online instruction. If a good foundation is not built, the other features (email, discussion board, etc) will become simply a social tool. As I have to create the majority of my courses from scratch due to limited resources, I would love to have an LMS to house all my files and courses that I could use for direct and facilitated instruction.
