A Great Leave Behind

American culture does not place much emphasis on how to properly end life. We all know that it is coming one day, yet there is usually a foggy apprehension to strategically focus on how one’s life will end. There aren’t any commercials, billboards and actor endorsements to purchase your will or end-of-life package. It is even a hard sell for investment firms to rally their troops around life insurance. Our culture is just not geared in that way. So, having a discussion about what one should leave behind could sound quite foreign. The mere question will cause one to ponder about their life’s work. Maybe one has written a book or two, built a business, nonprofit or some other piece of work that can rightly define the nature of the one who created it. Indeed, there is an obvious question to raise: why would one want to leave behind anything? The answer is simple – so one’s life continues to have meaning, continues to have an impact. What does one have to give? Each and every person has their knowledge and wisdom gained throughout their lifetime. This is most important, and very much worth passing on to others. How to do it is the next question. This knowledge, this wisdom needs packaging – an objective to give it a bit of understanding. Stated problems to denote the reasoning or evidence why the knowledge and/or wisdom is necessary. And then the content to justify the objective and therefore showcase the knowledge. To package this properly it needs to contain certain assessment tools that adequately analyze how the end user is learning from the knowledge presented.

A Learning Management System (LMS) is a great engine in which to wrap one’s knowledge and pass it on to others. It has all the necessary parts to package knowledge and wisdom effectively. Each objective for the knowledge is actually a course. The objective for the knowledge will have a title, which is searchable and easy to find by an end user. Therefore, if a user wants to know how to use JavaScript within Unity3D this user will simply search for “JavaScript Unity3D”, which will direct the user to any course with the title, “How to use Unity3D with JavaScript.” A description of the title will elaborate fully on all aspects of the objective, who should take the course and how to best navigate through the knowledge. Units or lessons will partition the knowledge in small bites for the user, ultimately leading them to the objective. Assessment tools can then gather information from users at the beginning of the course and quiz them along the way to ensure learning. Moreover, discussion boards and messaging areas are utilized by users when they wish to ask questions.

One of the most profound aspects of a LMS is the fact that it does not deteriorate. A book becomes tattered with use and over a number of years. Also, there are no assessment tools directly integrated into a book. Then, at some point a building will need renovation, because its ceiling, floors and windows becomes weathered over time. Yet a LMS can perform in the same manner for one user in the same manner as it performs for other users, 10, 20, 30 years down the line. As technology changes and evolves, the LMS changes and evolves along with it. It is the new time capsule, just better and more informative with excellent analytics.
