Please do continue this on the listserv, as the discussion has widespread appeal.  Heck, you’ve even got this lurker chiming in.

Sarah & Ellen: There's enough interest, it seems -- would you be willing to continue the discussion on the listserv instead of taking it offline?


Thank you,

Hi Ellen,

My first two reactions are

- wouldn't that distance the designers from the tool which could lead to courses that underutilize what is possible in the LMS or try to do things that aren't possible?  While I don't want to be driven by the tool it does come with inherent strengths and weaknesses one has to work within.

- couldn't that lead to too much hierarchy and staff bloat along with a relegation of the technical to "those wizards over there."

But again, just first reactions,
-- Scott

I second, third, fourth...the request for presenter and document information. Please do continue this in the list.

Thank you!
