Like:
Eclipse

Highly customizable.
Huge potential benefits for long term advanced users. Correctly designed for this type of long term user.
Clearly designed and built by programmers.

Dislike:
elms.umd.edu

Unnecessary 'module' interface, 99% of student usage is clicking on a link under 'My Courses'.
Information for instructors and administrators, which is completely irrelevant for students, clutters the left half of the screen.
Announcements window takes up half of the page and is the most visible. Seems to be non-urgent, general listserv updates for ELMs and probably useless for the majority of students.
Would be much more useful if this page was replaced by 'My Courses', or else there were a different landing page for signing in.
