Thanks for the post +Phil Hill - am very interested in this 80/20 idea - and hear it often when there is an LMS shift, "we are going to get that 80% engaged by making it easier or required."  

Too bad for those 20% of people who have such specific power-needs...but aren't these are your current "customers"  - you asked them to use technology and they did, they stepped up...and now you don't care about their needs?

I will confess I am one of the 20% as an online instructor.  Am very intrigued by this idea that universities want more/all of their faculty using an LMS - and why?  What is the endgame? To put that in your marketing, "90% of our faculty use technology in the classroom"?  What issue is using the LMS solving in education - if you are using it as a pedagogical change agent, then you must give support, and not just expect the new shiny thing to create change...What do students want from an LMS  - what do they expect to find there?  what would be compelling for them other than just downloading and printing the syllabus/slide handouts.  
Not trying to be critical, just not sure what this is such a strong desire here....

+Laura Gibbs some video options...
I know we have a Michael Wesch already, but I really like this video about changing information - it is a bit dated, but the ideas are still very good - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-4CV05HyAbM

I also like this video on Why OER are important. - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dTNnxPcY49Q

The focus is on app development, but the advice can apply in many places - Students treat their phones like a tutor, not a textbook - and Photos are a quick way to share content - and Educational content is painful to consume (they say on mobile devices, but this could be painted with a much broader brush)...

Such awesome news!!!  
_Achieving the Dream announced a major competitive grant program that will support the creation of fully OER-based degrees at individual community colleges and in community college systems across the US and Canada. As a result of this program, by fall of 2017 somewhere between 3% and 4% of all community colleges in the US will have at least one all-OER degree program. _

I am often talking about active learning and literacy as many who have to work around me can attest - and there is a lot of great conversation the real definitions of personalized and adaptive learning from  +Rob Reynolds and +Phil Hill and +Laura Gibbs ....an here is another...
Article quote However, now more than ever students need explicit support developing the skills that will allow them to successfully navigate—rather than drown in—the ocean of information that awaits them post-graduation.
If the system just adapts and creates the learning path for the student, then the student does not learn how to learn...

Was really excited to be a small part of this project with +Rob Reynolds  - I was pleasantly surprised at the number of faculty who responded to the affordable content survey, and that faculty in Oklahoma have a positive perception of OER.  
- faculty are very committed to their students, and to student success
- professional development is needed, but so hard to schedule and support - but lots of opportunity.

Thanks for sharing - I would have missed this, but it does get my knowledge management synapses firing (it has been a while).  There seems to be a lot of potential to expand/adapt this kind of a platform.  I agree with your observations on university faculty in these kind of systems.  Faculty are not crazy about it, but universities are encouraging interdisciplinary research, and are struggling with how to connect the different silos of higher ed.
