Drawbacks to Learning Management Systems ?

Certain learning tasks are well suited for an LMS (centralized functions like learner administration and content management). Learning itself is different – it is not a process to be managed. Learning is by nature multi-faceted and chaotic. Organizations that now lock into enterprise-level systems will be able to do an excellent job of delivering courses. They won’t, however, be positioning themselves well for informal learning, performance support, or knowledge management. The concept is simple: one tool can’t do it all without losing functionality. The more feature-rich an individual tool becomes, the more it loses its usefulness to the average user. Connected specialization, modularization, and decentralization are learning foundations capable of adjusting to varied information climate changes.
