[IAEP] Where should we put Lesson Plans? Currwiki?

Well, this is really what moodle was created for. Especially considering its
the main tool used in all XS server implmentations and is in use in at least
40% of British schools. I'm not sure about the American numbers, but pretty
sure it must be highly used there too. Creating courses in moodle is not
only easy, but extremely powerful, and can be easily shared with other
teachers. There are existing general moodle implementations, though none
have enough content, including the sugarlabs one (schools.sugarlabs.org) I'm
focusing my own efforts on linux-for-education.org, where little by little
we're growing the site. The latter has 5 sugar based courses I created and
several ubuntu and opensuse courses. Apart from the courses, the glossaries
and database modules link straight into the course content, allowing
students to easily look up terms used in courses that might be confusing.

kind regards,
David Van Assche
