(I’m I’m not at all ambivalent about Content Management Systems, such as WordPress - I am an enthusiastic user.) The distinction is that an LMS is a container for class work -.

For example, in this poll, if you want to vote for Desire2Learn then write a text message to 32075 which contains this text "cast 29368".
