Future of VLE's in universities

I am been having a couple of email conversations with colleagues recently about the university VLE - the theme is the extent to which we should use the VLE as the main delivery form for students and to what extent should we use a myriad of Web2.0 tools - blogs, social networks and bookmarks etc.

This relates to anther David's blog article about the future of the VLE in his institution.

One local and much more pragmatic issue is the use of Blackboard's Scholar social bookmarking system - my initial inclination was to suggest that we should recommend the use of open systems such as Delicious rather than the closed Blackboard system - but am being convinced that take up would be more with Scholar so may go with that.
