Re: [school-discuss] Open-source alternatives
when you say Plato, are you referring to the old Plato4 stuff from
Control Data Corporation in Mpls.., MN. Because if you are I conducted
an experimental evaluation of those modules and kids lose more months
than gain. CDC bit the dust, and if Plato is still around, it probably
still doesn't work.
I use Slackware Linux with Dropline GNOME at home and several server
projects. I am aware of a few of those on the list. But I am not
familliar with Zope, Sodipodi, Plone.
I was thinking along the lines of an open-source equivalent to PLATO
Pathways, TABE-PC, and Web CT.
