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.
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.
