Forum .LRN Q&A: Make installation work for everyone
We managed the installation ok, but I think we have not installed one single module with at least 2 hours afterwork to make it run errorfree.
Is this necessary? Maybe we are to dumb, but in order to keep track with Moodle this has to change.
What did you try, and what happened? What went wrong, what error message did you see, or what result did you expect that did not occur?
Dave: are there any initiative in place for teaching/welcoming new users (other than your help on irc?)
If not, I'd love to start discussing how I could help in this regard.
It sounds like you are now in charge of the effort to improve the new user experience for OpenACS/.LRN :)
Honestly there are any number of suggestions, but little effort has been put into implementing these. I suggest you start a forum thread to get people interested and organized in one place. I know several people who are interested in this type of project.
Look for a forum thread shortly. As I was recently told on irc, the biggest problem with acquiring new blood is the slow learning curve. So let's try and come up with some new strategies to flatten this curve.
