I do like the LMS updates from e-Literate, but I wish they were more complete. A snapshot that focuses only on a segment of the U.S. market becomes increasingly irrelevant. The chart lists only 'higher education' sales, when a substantial bulk of the market is K-12 and corporate. It lists only LMSs and not MOOC tools (except Canvas, which is judged to be an LMS). And as mentioned, it lists the U.S. market which, while large, is nowhere near the majority, and not necessarily a leading indicator either. I don't know why they keep their focus narrow this way. But I do know they should change the title of this series of posts to something like "U.S. only Higher Ed closed LMS adoption update." Oh, and for what it's worth, in this market, Canvas is up, Blackboard is down, and everyone else is pretty much steady. And the main news is that there is an increasing (but unsurprising) schism developing between Moodle central and the Blackboard-own commercial Moodle vendors.
