Have the lunatics taken over the asylum?

Leicestershire and Rutland Lunatic Asylum Yesterday I went to a presentation on the institutional strategy for the rollout of Blackboard 9.
Not a discussion or a consultation, but a presentation.
Which was nice.
And apart from Where has the pedagogical input for this come from? all I could think was:

You lock the door
And throw away the key
There's something in my head, but it's not a VLE.

And if the cloud bursts, thunder in your ear
I blog and no one seems to hear
And if the band I'm in starts playing different tunes
I'm teaching on the dark side of the moon.

The lunatics control my class
Remembering games and daisy chains and laughs
Got to keep the loonies on the path.
