A space for participants of my Presentation at NECC 2006. Open Source is the way to go for educators and their districts. I am always looking for feedback and resources to expand my open source offerings.
Please post your input for me and your colleagues on the Discussion tab above.

Moodle - Moodle is a course management system (CMS) - a free, Open Source software package designed using sound pedagogical principles, to help educators create effective online learning communities. You can download and use it on any computer you have handy (including webhosts), yet it can scale from a single-teacher site to a 50,000-student University.

Metadot - Metadot is a leading open source portal software (GPL) used to create websites, intranets, extranets, project and community portals **anyone can use.**

You can read many opinions and critiques by checking out all the postings. I am getting so excited as it is always so motivating to start the summer with great educators from around the world. Hope to see you there! Tagging NECC06 is a fabulous idea presented by David Warlick. Now he has setup an aggrator to pull us all together. Check out Hitchhiker.
