We're phasing in a new on-line registration system, my third since I got to this job.
Students pick classes by putting them in a "shopping cart" just as they do when they shop at whatever on-line retailer.
Do the people who design these things even think?
Is shopping really the metaphor we want to use for choosing a curriculum, a course of study?
Maybe it's not a metaphor at all, after all, the customer is always right, and I'm sure not the customer in this model.
