Forum OpenACS Development: Response to Site Map UI Issues

Posted by Don Baccus on
Sorry - OF is Open Force, Ben Adida's company, and dotLRN is the education application built upon OpenACS 4 that's being underwritten by the Sloan School of Management at MIT.

What I was referring to was Stephens characterization of an intranet package being a package aggregate, if you will, that would mount the various pieces (bboard, etc) needed automatically.  In dotLRN a "class" (in the school sense - a group of folks being taught a subject by a teacher, as opposed to say a Java class) will be a package that can be mounted and that will automatically mount a bboard instance, calendar instance, etc.  And set up a bunch of portals and portlets that will set up a standardized page set for the class (so students will see very similar web pages for each class they take).

I wasn't referring to Stephen's comments about the ISP selling webspace example ...
