Title: The Emerging LMS Ecosystem. A series of four overlapping circles. The smallest, center circle is labeled Core LMS, which is centrally identified and funded with an expectation of usage. The second circle is Recommended tools, such as web conferencing, video, and assessment tools, all of which are widely used and centrally funded and supported. The third circle is Optional tools, like clickers, e-portfolios, and adaptive textbooks, which are less widely used, funded by departments and colleges, and get Tier 1 central support only. The fourth and largest circle is Cutting Edge tools, including badging systems and advanced media tools, which have focused usage, are paid for by users, and have no central support.
