It is integrated as part of traditional courses, serves as a cornerstone of many blended courses, and is often the main information delivery mechanism in MOOCs.

Teachem started off with limited functionality to keep it simple and easy to adopt (in contrast to ed.ted.com, for example, with some wonderful functionality available, but rather buggy performance in my experience). They are gradually, thoughtfully, building in additional functionality (more on that below).
