If a RCAT vendor tells you they have been in business for over 10 years, they are somewhat misleading, since WBT courses really didn’t start to hit the mark until 2000 and then you have limited choices on how to build.

For a while now, Moodle has been the world’s most popular open-source learning management system.

For example, I really don’t see an advantage of keeping courses for Microsoft XP or 2000. . Nor do I see an advantage of a leadership courses where the people in it are wearing clothes from the late 90’s or early 2000’s. I know there are courseware providers who have course standards including AICC, but again, as folks know – I think AICC should be removed and placed in the Smithsonian as a relic. .
