Content - Creator and User Divide

Why in the world of VLEs do we have this divide between the creators of the content and the users of it? In the typical VLE the creators of the content are the staff who are running the course and the students who are taking it. Wouldn't it be nice if everyone could create content? My idea is to allow everyone who has an account in our VLE (Bodington) to create content. As Bodington isn't based around the idea classes and courses it is reasonable easy to grant administrative rights to each user in thier own little area and have them manage it themselves. In my next posts I'll write about why I think this is a good idea and how it might work ing Bodington.
