Software-Coding Costs Force Indiana U. at Bloomington to Drop a Popular Graduation Guarantee

Commentary by Stephen Downes

This is one for the books - and I must say, a really embarassing moment for PeopleSoft. According to this article, "the faculty council at Indiana University at Bloomington voted on Tuesday to cancel a popular four-years-and-out graduation policy because the university's new PeopleSoft student-records system could not be programmed to accommodate the policy except at great expense." I expect to read the announcement early next week that PeopleSoft will provide the required solution at little or no charge - which, the cynics among us suggest, was the intent of the faculty council motion in the first place (I'll post a note in OLDaily if I see anything).
