Unfortunately, like many other well-meaning actions, helicoptering can deliver more harm than good.

Delivering content for specific platforms also limits the development and distribution of content by smaller content providers and acts to exclude less widely used LMS platforms. Most of these systems each use their own proprietary formats for course content and pose an expensive problem for content providers wishing to distribute content across platforms. And hello!
