Introduction - James Dalziel

Summary: Introduction to James Dalziel's contribution to the "OSS and OER in Education Series." In this post, he will be using experiences with LAMS (Learning Activity Management System) to tie together some thoughts about pedagogy, technology and open source software. LAMS is an open source Learning Design system. It provides tools to author, run, and manage Learning Designs (also known as digital lesson plans). The LAMS Community supports sharing of Learning Designs as open educational resources.
