Comparison of Webucate with other virtual campus systems

We have compiled a rough comparison chart of some of the distance learning admin systems that are available.  This is probably not complete, so if you come across any errors or any other products drop us an e-mail and we'll update the table.  We have tried to be objective in compiling the information, but we HAVE put our own product at the top  :-)

Notes:

Webucate can be used as a front end to other virtual campus systems (allows pass-thru of usernames and passwords in most cases).
Yahoogroups requires the user to obtain a Yahoo ID and map it to an e-mail address (this can be confusing and time consuming).
