Commentary by Stephen Downes

In view of data provided by Jonathon Rees (image above) Audrey Watters writes, "if, indeed, people are primarily – heck, overwhelmingly – using the LMS to share documents and send announcements, then wow, we need to really look closely at what Google Apps for Education is providing campuses." OK, but there's still not on the chart. Like integration to the university's student record system, for example, tracking and analytics, and of course the positioning of the LMS as a portal for resource and textbook sales. Other people - not just professors - use the LMS, often in ways that are not visible to professors.
