@clintlalonde Great site. A fun game to play: Guess the FOSS apps you would recommend for each option and compare the results. Surprised not to see Openshot listed as replacement option for Adobe Premiere Pro

@mackiwg @clintlalonde I'm surprised not to see a page for learning management systems. But I respect how they even suggest alternatives to their own web site!

@stevefoerster @clintlalonde I guess LMSs are kinda niche? The rest of the world outside of HE has survived the shackles of the LMS! 😂

@mackiwg @stevefoerster I suspect this is the case. Most of the software they have on the list seem to be aimed at a general audience. LMS's are probably a bit too industry (for lack of a better term) specific.
