Miles Berry says of the London Grid for Learning's (LGfL's) Briefing for Local Authorities and Schools (MS-Word doc) on 'Learning Platforms' that "The apparent degree of bias and prejudice throughout this document is frankly astonishing: it seems to me that LGfL are seriously rattled by the number of London schools opting for open source or their own choice of commercial 'learning platforms' rather than sticking with the Digital Brain powered LGfL solution." What follows is a sustained attack on the document. For some reason, LGfL seems to thing of open source as do-it-yourself (DIY) and caution against the dangers of such an approach. One wonders whether they have actually tried, say, Moodle.
