I have been battling with the restrictions, lack of features or just meaningless complexity of various Learning Management Systems. I would like us to build a list of key features and promote the idea to Adobe.

Please refrain from bad-naming other products, let's keep it positive!

I would be interested to see Adobe enter this space: Connect is a great synchronous tool. I've not seen the e-Learning platform that Adobe offers, but I think Instructure Canvas is the one to beat these days. We run the open-source version at our institution.

Doesn't Adobe connect allow the capability for results to be gathered? But it would be nice if it was tied to a gradebook that the school uses.

I have used the k12 LMS and although it had some minor limitations, it certainly seemed to be a fairly comprehensive LMS system. I would love to see Adobe implement their own LMS for those of us who instruct Adobe product classes. I think that would be a wonderful addition to an already outstanding product line.

I have provide a screenshot of the home page for k12 LMS. CLICK HERE

It includes a place for loading an instructor bio, course syllabus, gradebook, help utility, scheduling online sessions and so on. It also includes a calendar for the entire semester showing assignments, due dates, and any attachments the student needs to complete the assignment.

I too am a believe that a better LMS can be built. I think it must have some integration capability with the school's registration system to the courses and students are automatically populated. I would like to see a system that adapts to social media needs much better as well.

Interesting idea! I am currently participating the Training for Trainers program and, while it is being offered using an online platform, I don't believe it is a true LMS, but it does have many of the features of an LMS, such as conditional releases, embedded discussion forums, module structure, but I don't see elements such as grading functions, competencies structures, or assessment tools (or at least not that have been demonstrated thus far). Does anyone know what they are using in the background to create the course?

I would like to see strong tools to support collaboration, iterative processes for assessment, competency focused design tools integrated with assessment methods, and parent auditing for the k-12 environment.
