Knowledge, Learning, Community
Such a pleasure that Scott Wilson has joined the blogosphere, and we're still in the heady first few days of his blog where every topic is new (it gets harder in the second year, when you realize you made the same point before, somewhere). In this item, Wilson outlines other values he thinks are important in specifications work are: utility, precision, free, open and clarity. He then looks - critically - at how e-learning specifications stack up. Personally, I think that the e-learning specifications will have to be rewritten. This column is a good example of some of the reasons why: scope-creep, excessive "what if?" analysis, and premature optimisation. Bonus Wilson: why Sakai isn't ready for prime time.
