Forum .LRN Q&A: Re: interesting chat about moodle / .LRN

Posted by Alfred Essa on
Miguel is absolutely correct. OpenACS is great technology but it remains an obscurest of platforms accessible only to the cognoscenti.

OpenACS and .LRN will not get traction unless the community pays attention to some basics:

* easy installer
* accurate documention for newbies

Bizarre comment.

I can install Apache, MySQL, Moodle, Php. etc etc. in 5 minutes. The basic documentation is accurate and up-to-date. I don't have to rely on commercial vendors to get started with the system.

Hello Alfred!

I am totally agreed with you.

Other great problem is the dependency with aolserver

Any plan to separate OpenACS of aolserver and work it
from Apache?
