Forum .LRN Q&A: .LRN Active Projects and Release Philosophy
MIT Sloan is currently working on and : Login Page UI, WebDAV, HTML Editor, Forums UI, and Complex Survey.
If you wish to coordinate a project or if your institution is committed to bringing a module or project to production quality, please contact Tracy Adams (.LRN Release Manager) so that we can update the .LRN Projects page.
at Galileo we are using heavily Evaluation (grade-book) and will contribute it in oracle. The same for LORS (we'll start heavily deployment with it in january, expected about 5,000 possible users).
We are also interested in complex survey, do you have it i18n? (of course, later we'll move to assessment).
Can someone explain what are your plans on login page UI?
Thanks a lot for giving LORS institutional support. I'm really pleased that you and the e-lane fellows are taking it to the next level. Additionally, Senior Lecture Dr Calvo has committed to continue the development of LORS. In version LORS 0.5d, hopefully we will be able to include an full online LOM editor developed by a student of his (Gerard Low).
Additionally, development for other projects like Concord et al, will also help further develop LORS.
If Gerardo can give us an estimated time on the i18 of LORS, we can see in which release we can accommodate for it.
Gerardo, what do you think?
Could you add dotTEACH and eFolio as two new projects, both maintained by the Web Engineering Group, University of Sydney?
Also, the HTML for the description for LORS is messed up.
Now that Ernie submitted and got a job somewhere else, there is no one working fulltime on LORS. I am happy for e-lane to maintain the package, or we can do it jointly
Yes, we can do the maintain of LORS jointly, though is a shame Ernie cannot keep doing development on it.
The fact that I work elsewhere or do other stuff does not limit me to keep maintaining the packages. As a matter of fact, there's a road map for features to be implemented in future versions of LORS. Most of them, I'll be heavily involved as part of the work for Concord/PBS. So I do see myself as the package maintainer.
The reasons that Galileo has taken the project is because are heavily using it for e-lane. And of course, I'm really greatful of them to do so, since now the .LRN philosophy obliges packages to be maintain by institutions.
By no means, I want to be a dictator for this package, that's -of course- ridiculous, but I'll be heavily involved in the future of this package.
We (MIT Sloan) will be taking the lead in implementing WebDAV but hope that others will help with maintaining.

Most of those package are beign developed on HEAD, so better to download from HEAD.
You need to do something like:
cvs checkout dotlrn-extras
If someone else wants to add something else to the dotlrn-extras alias let me know.
I know it is nothing that comes out of the box, but it would be very high on my wishlist for a development by the consortium, to enhance the number of people who can voice their interest in functionality and the numbers of contributors (that not necessarily want to put money into the consortium, e.g. because of lack for the funds for the minimum fee, but still have some bucks to spare). Maybe a nice project for some students ?
