  1. Oh Stanley, I’m sore you didn’t cite my 2005 post, Die LMS Die, You Too PLE. Ok, it’s no doubt too extreme, and would hardly be a respectable reference. I have written more respectable critiques, but this one is by far the most cited. That post is evidence at least, that some of us never believed the hype and promises, and saw them for what they are. The only honest argument I’ve heard in all these years, is that the LMS provides the institution with data for external audits. But it’s not even a half honest answer, because you don’t have to click far to see that the data is neither generated (teachers loading PDFs and that’s all), nor used. The Student Management System is the primary provider of data. So what’s the LMS even for? Sheep I tell you.

    Hi Leigh – great to hear from you. I agree with many of your thoughts about the LMS/PLE/VLE. But I’m in a position where I have to make some strategic decisions that take into account the views of many academics who don’t share these same ideas, and probably never will. So I find work-arounds and try to navigate a forward path in what Bill Readings called this ‘community of dissensus’ (The University in Ruins, 1996).
    Hey btw good luck with the job search and if you do think of perhaps coming back to NZ let me know :)

    Odors are generally caused by bacteria and particles that travel through the air, so by
    eliminating those particles, you can see a smell go away relatively quickly.

    the size of your environment as well as fan speed and Fresh – Air Surround’s mold-killing
    vapor will arrest mold growth in as little as 2- 4 hours.
