In pursuit of a better way: sounds like we need an Angel

With the heightened awareness of politics, due to the recent american presidential election, I'd like to borrow and re-engineer in typical web 2.0 generation style a phrase from the political world - "it's all about the learning, stupid....."

And my point is... Technology can be a massive hinderance to learning. Usability (Interface and functional design), technological robustness and reliability for both learners and learning designers (teachers) is vitally important. Perhaps the use of Angel is a better option in combining the administrative needs of a higher education institution, the learning needs of the students and the learning design needs of teachers - Well Tony Seuss seem to think so. Not have used angel myself i am nevertheless impressed with Tony's observations in his blog post.
