on link by Lars Was, #CCK11 gRSShopper vs Moodle – Any thoughts?, Feb 16, 2011.
As gRSShopper is an ongoing work in progress, far more a research project than any sort of commercial application, I would be interested in feedback.
I agree that there is a familiarity people have with Moodle. But I would like those comfortable with Moodle to consider a world in which courses are offered through a variety of platforms - Moodle, Sakai, Blackboard, Desire2Learn, and many others. In such a case, really, people need their own personal platform - right now available only as Blogger or Wordpress or Facebook - which will connect remotely to the LMS. That's what gRSShopper supports that the others don't. (Hits Today: 11302 Total: 11302)
