At Oracle, the design philosophy for our systems to support education is that the student is at the center of the teaching and learning process for life. So, when one of our K12 customers asks, "Can we build a new hybrid LMS and SIS system for the 21st Century based on the ideas, tools and platform for CRM?". The answer as it turns out is yes.

After a week in Long Beach with the good folks at the IMS Learning Impact despite the rain. Highlights included Gerry's update on Merlot and the Affordable Learning Solutions program they have put in place for OER resources to save student's money. Other cool stuff on Common Cartride at the GLRC and the semantic web, Gates Foundation on digital learners and the Florida Virtual School. Of course the best part was seeing Linda's killer demo of SAIP with Blackboard and Marc's talk on the print-to-digital revolution in libraries and the power of Oracle UCM to get help get there. Next up Monday morning and the SIIA Ed Tech Forum fortunately taking place a BART ride away.
