[sugar] offline moodle

That's a great overview David,
We need to get working quickly on developing course materials. Our two
full-time educators, Kamana and Sunil, currently write out lesson plans
and activity descriptions in MS Word. Not quite ideal :)
I want to get them using Moodle asap. It will improve collaboration b/w
the developers and educators. Also, we are currently storing
supplementary materials on the fileserver, which is again a pretty lousy
way to do it. Kamana and Sunil want to lay out a whole course, i.e.,
class2 mathematics with descriptions of activities and exercises they
want developed, and then help the developers build activities that meet
their ideas. Eventually I want to put the courses on a public server (if
I had the hosting budget) so volunteers can more easily create
activities to meet the ideas dreamt up by Sunil and Kamana.

At the moment, this is enough for us to work w/, just the static
materials. What was the resource consumption of Jolongo on your eeePC?
Perhaps an interim option as we wait for the offline clients to mature
is to write a shell script that harvests the static html and embedded
activities like Flash and Etoys to an .xo bundle.

However, the Jolongo project, with its reliance on Adobe AIR might be both
lighter and more portable, as well as easier to install. That said, the OU
version will be using sqlite, so that could even things out. Giving it a
couple of months will allow us to see which one of these projects is the
best adapted to usage by OLE and olpc.
