A flipped-LMS is an approach where an open platform, chosen by an instructor, provides an alternative front-end to their institutional LMS. Deep links (i.e. direct links) are provided to any required LMS elements such as discussions, assignments, grades, etc.
A flipped-LMS also enables a”flip” of ownership of the course experience to the hands of instructors and students.
A live example of a flipped-LMS approach, using the CMS Grav and Canvas LMS, is at: http://paulhibbitts.net/cmpt-363-163/.
