It’s amazing just how far Moodle, an open source Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) project, has come. Several polytechnics in Australia have embarked on the largest deployment of Moodle to date. Four universities are likely to migrate to Moodle (probably from WebCT or Blackboard?) by July, and 10 secondary schools are already using it.
While it is good to read about how money is being saved for channeling towards other educational needs too, I do wish that a "blueprint" for such deployments exist so that the rest of the world might benefit from their experience. Heck, I don’t even know of any local school using Moodle locally!
