Commentary and link to BECTA's newly released learning platform functional requirements. Although sounding criticial at first ("I think we'd have seen a very different document if Becta had worked from the ground up, asking pupils, teachers and schools what sort of functionality they'd like to see in learning platforms, rather than the top down") the author notes the BECTA appears to have listened to Moodle and open source advocates "about giving at least some place to the social dimension of learning, as well as some aspects of Web 2.0."
