Abstract: Since the emergence of learning management systems (LMS) in the 1960's we have seen many trends. They usually last for about 15 years before they become unpopular, disappear, and then reappear 15 years later in a different form. Internet-based e-learning technology is a synthesis of the 1970's Computer-Based-Training (CBT) and the 1980's Networked Classroom and it is now 13 years old. Statistically speaking, it is almost time to disappear and there are reasons. For example: Today's e-learning systems cannot cope with recent advances in learning design and computer-supported collaborative learning; they represent the antithesis of personal learning environments which are now in strong demand; their authoring model doesn't fit participatory web 2.0 media culture; IMS content packaging standards clash with modern collaborative document production technology. In addition, most LMSs are based on shaky APIs, offer low usability and cannot integrate with modern service-oriented architectures. So, what could be the future of systems like Dokeos ?
