    [Providers] Point Solutions vs. Suites and Composition
    LAMS provides rich functionality for designing a "flow” of learning activities, especially where these activities rely on collaboration between students to drive the learning process. The providers I've listed seem to say, we'll provide you all the tools that you can compose into your blend. Can you compose your course out of smaller components composed together, or does your authoring tool provide all the components you need? One of the more interesting back-stories in Blended Learning / eLearning 2.0 is the classic question of point-solutions vs. suites.

As you move up the maturity model you get into bigger and more centralized solutions with the ultimate solution being an all-you-can-eat tool. Oh, did I mention that the author comes from Saba ?

Based on some discussions around What is Rapid eLearning? welcome feedback on this mental model.

I just finished reading an interesting book, The Accidental Creative , by Todd Henry. Henry says: “You need to be purposeful about including self-directed, thought-provoking and capacity-increasing stimuli into your life on a consistent basis. How ironic!
