Will Open Source Software Unlock the Potential of eLearning? from the Campus Technology site.

This article contains an interesting graphic of an institution’s investment in software, comparing commercial and open source. The differences in planning and training, it seems to me, explains a whole lot about how technology is implemented in educational settings these days.

This article also contains what I think is a very pithy explanation for why so much commercial educational technology sucks:

“…education has been treated as a market of learning rather than an environment for learning.”

[emphasis in original]

Once again, it becomes clear how utterly inappropriate it is to apply capitalist models to education.
