Re: [school-discuss] Website admin for students

A webserver (like apache) running webdav and the students using a webdav 
compatible browser (like amaya)  would be able to construct web sites, within 
the browser.  

What is WebDAV? 
Briefly: WebDAV stands for "Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning". 
It is a set of extensions to the HTTP protocol which allows users to 
collaboratively edit and manage files on remote web servers. 





Amaya is a Web editor, i.e. a tool used to create and update documents 
directly on the Web. Browsing features are seamlessly integrated with the 
editing and remote access features in a uniform environment. This follows the 
original vision of the Web as a space for collaboration and not just a 
one-way publishing medium.

Amaya supports annotations. Annotations are external comments, notes, remarks 
that can be attached to any Web document or a selected part of the document.

This could allow some interesting collaborative work. letting students comment 
on other people work online - could do online debating of some sort.

amaya also supports mathml
