Wonderful, really looks like what I would like to see in the 6-12
months timeframe.

The quoted paragraph made me think of Moodle (and perhaps other

the world and I guess their goal is the same as ours (provide a
platform for learning, etc). Are they already where we want to get?
How did they got there?
