Agree with your observations. What do you think is stopping the more integrated learning platforms (SIS + LMS) from moving forward? More complexity than realized? More institutional change than can be adapted to? 
By Phil HillMore Posts (299) At today’s Learning Analytics and Knowledge 2015 conference (#LAK15), Charles Severance (aka Dr. Chuck) gave the morning keynote organized around the theme of going back in time to see what people (myself and Richard Katz … Continue reading →

+Tracey Zimmerman  This might sound negative, but the biggest barrier is the nature of ERP companies themselves. Biggest challenge for Oracle/PS and for Ellucian is to figure out how to compete with old architecture / try to include all options designs, especially with market entry of WordDay. The adjacent functionality that is most relevant is CRM and student lifecycle planning, not academic management & engagement.

I do think there are areas of complexity & institutional change at play, but in my mind those are secondary.

It's stuck. Like so many policies, beliefs and procedures in our organizations, this is a ritual that's stuck. To get unstuck, organization...

The slate is full or empty?  Why are we overly concerned with this paper?  Where is the call for pens then, erasers?  This looks more like anecdotal identity than wisdom.  It's truth that should be well-tread rather than so excessively muddled over, and betrays a fundamental error in value judgement.

Time for YES!
It's easy to join. There are a million reasons to say no, but few reasons to stand up and say yes. No requires just one objection, one defensible reason to avoid change. No has many allies--anyone who fears the future or stands to benefit from the status quo. And no is easy to say, because you actually don't even need a reason. No is an easy way to grab power, because with yes comes responsibility, but no is the easy way to block action, to exert...

Very cool!!
Archaeologists in Jerusalem have uncovered two large buildings fit for a king. Not just any king they say; but the palace of Biblical King David.
