In education, probably themajor player from this era was Elgg, at that time and still to this day a noveltechnology.

Within our research on social network software at Athabasca University (the Elgg-based The Landing ), we (mainly Jon Dron, actually) have been looking at ways to create different representations of activity streams to meet the needs of different contexts.

Open source Elgg may replace Ning with a non locked-in platform, but its success remains to be seen. Over three years ago I wrote that the future of learning is DIY : With Google you can find most information that you need. YouTube is a quick and easy way to get “learning objects” to the world.

Drupal is an open source CMS that’s been used for social media, and Elgg similarly started as an open source portfolio tool but has expanded.

| FRIDAY, JULY 28, 2006
Good post by Harold Jarche - Where are open source learning applications? First, open-source generally succeeds once an application domain is fairly well understood and the feature sets are relatively more stable. So, we should naturally expect to see open source solutions emerge where we see relatively stable feature sets.
