Re: [school-discuss] edu publishing tool

plone would require you to own and manage a we server. plone is very powerful but requires some expertise. although it is one of my favorites, there are many other free CMSs available, such as Drupal, Joomla and XWiki.

a low-cost alternative would be to use a free hosted wiki or blog, such as:

generally, blogs are easier to set up and manage, but wikis have more features such as flexible site structure, attachments, embedded media & gadgets.

finally, if you want to allow social interaction around the materials, you might want to consider ning.com

i have prepared some educational material for high school students and
teachers and i'd like to publish it as soon as possible; i need a
simple hint from you:
i do not hold a personal web page actually and i'd like to know what
suits best the following characteristics:
- i have to upload educational material, mainly texts, (CC-licenced, by the way)
- visitors (mainly students and teachers) should have the freedom to
download contents and post their comments
- the technology should be free, with easy startup and low time
requested for maintenance
- this page should be personal, hence i'd not go for wikis, since it
will reflect my strictly personal work and opinions; i currently
manage a wiki but it will be developed with students collaboratively

thank you very much in advance
Have a look at Plone. (www.plone.org)
