LMS as Legos

As I am pursuing my theory of Moodle as the glue that can hold together all of the parts of authentic online learning, I have been looking for other metaphors that support it. Yesterday, I came across this one:

I really like how simple this makes Moodle and LMS work in general. By showing all of the “building blocks” of Moodle, it shows off just how unimportant the all-in-one approach is. If anything can be added, what is the use of trying to design something that can do everything. Rather than working on creating something to do everything, we should be working on creating something that can talk to everything.

We need more legos, not more finished buildings.
