Moodle is the biggest open source course management system in the world. It competes head-to-head with Blackboard on features and crushes the commercial competition on price. I’ve posted about the use of Moodle in my school district in the past, and anyone who’s read any of those posts knows that I’m a huge fan. I thought it would be cool to go to the source and ask Martin Dougiamas, Moodle founder and project leader, a bit more about the project. I think you’ll enjoy this podcast very much!
I continue to be impressed by Skype. Martin’s in Perth, Western Australia, and our conversation from (literally) halfway around the world sounds like we’re sitting in the same room. Is Skype worth $1.6 billion? eBay thinks so. Premature or not, VoIP is going to be huge.
