yes, I agree the imsproject should be classified as courseware.

it is a big part of my overall picture because I do a lot of work in
self-paced settings.  But I concede that for traditional teachers, it is not
currently a big part... though it could well be if the courseware was
integrated to the markbook.  In a class of 30, each student would get a
report card stating exactly how much and what of the grade 4 math curriculum
they have mastered ... some students could move on to grade 5 math and
beyond while others need more time to master earlier concepts.  No mess, no
fuss, the courseware keeps the markbook informed.
