Forum .LRN Q&A: Response to Has someone done a comparision of dotLRN with other commercial systems?

It's critically important to go deeper than high-level feature comparision lists and look at the quality of the implementations (from the user's perspective, not the programmer's). The game in e-learning infrastructure sales these days is to come up with a long bulleted list of features, even if they are so poorly implemented that they are unusable.

I recently wrote an article discussing this problem specifically for learning content management systems:

We need to do similar analyses for all areas of core funcitonality in dotLRN.
