Commentary by Stephen Downes

I don't want to be such a critic, but really - if MIT and Stanford are supposed to be so leading edge, shouldn't they be further ahead than this? "Step 1 is to have a basic system that covers things like posting documents, making announcements, giving quizzes, having a home page. That's a star we can almost reach. We're getting close." Sheesh, guys, take an afternoon, download some simple tools, buy a copy of Hot Potatos. That gets you to Step 1 by Friday. Better yet, do a half hour web search for open source learning management system before inventing a new one. But look - when from last week I see an item about OKI releasing CRLFcommon service layer APIs I know that the situation is nothing like what is depicted in the article... so what gives?
