Educause Article – A Capabilities Approach for the Next-Generation CMS

http://www.educause.edu/apps/er/erm05/erm0533.asp

I’m sure lots of those disenchanted with the current crop of CMS will enjoy reading this piece by Van Weigel. Weigel suugests another approach to envisioning what the next-generation CMS might look like; what’s missing for me (and to be fair, this is just a chapter length piece, so it’s unfair to expect this as well) is the ‘how.’ If CMS don’t end up looking like this vision (or some of the other suggested alternatives) it will not be the first time ‘better’ technology visions haven’t won out over market forces. So how, given that the the latest available Educause Core Data survey states that 90% of institutions have adopted CMS (of which 75% are commercial ones), is the change to be brought about. Bit by bit, I suppose. – SWL
