ELGG: open-source, state-of-the-art community blogging

ELGG: open-source, state-of-the-art community blogging - ELGGA couple months ago the talented Dave Tosh and Ben Werdmuller released their ELGG software as open source, which means you can run your own and participate in the development.

Dave and Ben have been working hard over the past year, and the result is quite impressive. One way to describe ELGG is as "a deeply clueful approach to eportfolios", but really, it's a general-purpose blogging community system that is easily applicable beyond the educational realm.

It feels a lot like a pumped-up version of the popular LiveJournal platform in that it supports customization, social networking, faces, friend aggregation and group-forming, but also other tasty goodies like file sharing and fine-grained access control. If you're looking for a multi-user weblogging option, you should definitely consider it.

You can try ELGG out from the main site, or, if you're a teacher, you may be more interested in getting an account at TeacherEd, a budding community of teachers who seek to connect and share.

By the way, if you're an interested developer, the development community lives here. The system is built in PHP, and there's a promising roadmap.

H2O - "The H2O project is building an interlocking collection of communities based on the free creation and exchange of ideas. The H2O system consists of two components -- the Idea Exchange and the Rotisserie. The Idea Exchange includes all features necessary to host a course entirely on H2O, including resource (readings, notes, videos, etc) uploads and traditional, adhoc discussion boards. More interestingly, the system now facilitates the collaborative development of course syllabi, allowing project leaders not only to upload course materials to the site but also easily to browse, search, and import the materials of other projects into their own projects."...

It's about the Community Plumbing: The Social Aspects of Content Management Systems -

Abstract submitted for Computers and Writing Online 2005

Co-authored by Charles Lowe and Dries Buytaert

In the summer of 2003, we worked on creating a general description of Drupal--an open source content management system (CMS)--for the About page on While Drupal is clearly within the class of applications know as content management systems, we felt that to describe it with that term alone would not present a clear picture of the breadth and range of Drupal's capabilities. Thus, the final description ended up describing Drupal with a total of four characteristics, although notably not distinct:

  • content management
  • weblog
  • discussion-based community software
  • collaboration

Online Learning: Social Interaction and the Creation of a Sense of Community

Online Learning: Social Interaction and the Creation of a Sense of Community - ABSTRACTThis paper centres on the sense of isolation that online study may engender among learners, a factor often ignored by many educators, but one that may make the difference between a successful and an unsuccessful online learning environment for many students.

Modelling the Learning Transaction

Modelling the Learning Transaction - A model of learning transactions is offered for use by the University of Southampton in the development of e-learning materials and toolkits. The model identifies the key components required for effective learning, and in doing so helps the development team ensure the provision of these components to the teacher or learner. [eLearnopedia]
