Course Management Systems: It's the Support, Stupid!

Course Management Systems: It's the Support, Stupid! - When you come down to it, the questions are: Does single-vendor CMS (proprietary CMS products such as WebCT or Blackboard) offer an inherent advantage in the areas of product and user support over the Sakai open source model? Or do the open accessibility of the product source code and the range of potential suppliers for Sakai support mean that open source CMS support actually has an edge over that of proprietary systems?

The Open Source Development Model Meets Professional Writing and Service Learning: OSDDP

The Open Source Development Model Meets Professional Writing and Service Learning: OSDDP -

In Open Source and Academia, Laurie Taylor and Brendan Riley point out some possible benefits of applying the open source development model in a service learning project:

While Open Source can connect to models for service learning, service learning can be done by an individual in service to the community. The Open Source model requires that a collaborative group undertake the project. Additionally, while a service learning project may last one semester, Open Source projects should strive to remain open for later revision for a longer period. Further, Open Source as a method requires that the discussion and documentation be available for later groups to implement or alter. Service learning is instead more focused on the individual experience with the project rather than later repeatability.

Now there is a live example with a couple of hundred professional writing students working within an open source development model community, Purdue University's Open Source Development and Documentation Project (OSDDP). The following is from our most recent press release, Open source networked learning helps writing students excel at Purdue University :

Making service part of your e-learning strategy - "Whether you’re selecting a learning management system (LMS), a learning content management system (LCMS), online courseware or some other technology component to support your learning initiative, you know to look closely at the technology, pore over our checklists and pay particular attention to the “yes/no” boxes down a laundry list of technical features and specifications.Yes, technology is important. It gives us great capabilities and potential for learning and development. It gives us delivery options and the ability to track and quantify learning activities and results. But technology alone is just half of the equation. Too often, we forget about the... [E-Learning Centre]
