Abstract

The current educational technology debate is often framed as a contest between the CMS and the PLN, between centralized IT and individualized toolboxes. Mott argues that we should reject this "either-or" choice and instead embrace the possibility of a best-of-both-worlds "and" solution. Such a solution would combine the value of SIS integration and secure, assessment-related communication with the openness and persistence of the web.
