Growth and further development of Course Management Systems

This wil be a brief post tonight. There is a conference dinner in an hour and I'm hoping to get in a half hour nap beforehand.

I spent a good part of today at meetings where the discussion was about further development of CMS. I want to make only one observation about it here. Schools that are large and were on the bleeding edge a year or two ago seem like they will be slowing down in their plans to implement current versions of the software. Schools who are new to the software want the most current version, of course, but for the schools that hae been there for a while, don't want to make changes unless they are quite signficant. I wonder if an annual release cycle continues to make sense.
