The most fun part of this otherwise vague article on what to look for in a learning content management system (LCMS) is the list of bad ideas at the end of the article. Among the more useless features (according to the authors) offered by LCMS vendors: integration of PowerPoint slides ("why not just distribute the slides and be done with it?"), repurposing for print, and re-usable learning objects ("the SCORM standard that is supposed to make it possible really isn't up to handling re-usability well"). The wish list? Bug tracking, interactivity support and shared templates. Well... yeah.
