Choosing a F/OSS e-learning environment

The Centre d’Educació i Noves Tecnologies of the de la Universitat Jaume I (UJI, Castelló, Spain) has released a report on how to choose a F/OSS e-learning environment.

It’s based on pedagogic flexibility, usability and technological flexibility.

They’ve found three main tendencies:

  • Environments focusing on content management: i.e. ATutor
  • Environments centered in communication: i.e. Moodle
  • Environments to foster networking: i.e. .LRN

Finally, they chose Moodle for it best fitted UJI’s needs. By the way, this means that UJI will collaborate in Moodle’s development, which is good news and quite a commitment :)

The report is in Spanish and Catalan.
