Forum .LRN Q&A: offering .LRN as an ASP solution

Posted by Peter Marklund on
Does anyone have an idea of what it would take to modify .LRN so that one .LRN server (one AOLServer instance) could accomodate multiple universities?

I suppose the best approach for that would be to mount one dotlrn package instance per university? How much in .LRN rests on the assumption that the dotlrn package is a singleton?

dotLRN does rely a good deal on being a singleton right now, given that it's already doing multiple community management. There are two approaches you can take:

- set up one dotLRN and different community types for each client

- set up multiple dotLRNs

I think the first one will be easier. The second one would be a bit more OpenACS-friendly, but would require some additional work.
