On the drive to work this morning I heard a nice piece on National Public Radio on distance learning, a.k.a. E-learning. Tomorrow they will have a second installment focusing on technique. If you know someone who teaches on-line you should suggest they give a listen.

This sot me thinking software and how E-learning began with established Internet protocols but quickly moved towards integrated, proprietary, commercial software.

How is the FOSS community doing in this niche? Are there any good Foss distance learning applications? Real-time and asynchronous? Widely used?
