The Future of Learning Management Systems

I wonder where things are going with Learning Management Systems (LMS). We’ve got a merger going on with two of the incumbents;Blackboard and WebCT. And both of these incumbents have systems that were developed during Web 1.0. And the Web 2.0 seems to be building steam.  The learning theories to support cognitive flexibility and related theories are growing in depth and acceptance.  And we have LMS that are targeting these new theories.  Moodle is one such LMS and after taking a read of moodles proposed future, it get you thinking.
