1. Without certain functionality in the Next Generation product, these clients will not migrate to the next generation product (SIS real time integration; hierarchical permissions for multiple roles and distributed support, etc.).
2. Since these users can not migrate without the functionality their institutions are built around they will either stick with Bb Vista/CE products until the end of life, now scheduled for 2012, OR, they will move to another CMS/LMS/VLE.
3. Since they are ‘stuck,’ advocating for fixing the defects in the current product and enhancing the current product to make it what it should’ve been all along, keep this Community of Practice constantly moving and edgey.
That’s why the VistaSWAT Community of Practice is so active.
