We have apps for Linux (AUC, LearnLoop, Shadow, Chris Lehmann's reporting
stuff, etc.) that can do all of this.  Some of our most evident shortcomings
are the lack of documentation on how to configure and use these tools and
the lack of publicity to make them known to the educational community.  I
don't know just what we might be able to do to address them (well, the
documentation is just a matter of the will and desire to do it).  Jen
Horney, is this something the RH Center might be interested in?
