Forum .LRN Q&A: offering .LRN as an ASP solution
Posted by Peter Marklund on 10/31/02 06:06 PM
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.
