Drivers and modulators

Dave Snowden

One thing that came up this morning (well overnight as the exchange is with an Australian) is the difference between drivers and modulators, or rather the different implications of the two terms. A different way of looking at this is the replace the word driver with modulator.

A New Website, Part Six - Drupal Modules

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Modules A module is some additional programming that gives your site some additional functionality. A number of optional modules come installed with the original Drupal download. In addition, you can get many more modules from the Drupal web site. The first step, then, is to look at the list of modules that comes with the Drupal download. So I select 'Site Building' -> 'Modules'. So I activate the module. This will happen for every module.

Building a Culture of Continuous Learning

Charles Jennings

To achieve these three targets, we need to think out of the traditional learning and development box – beyond the class/course and eLearning module approaches towards embedding a culture where learning becomes recognised as occurring within the workflow. Most people get it.

The Standalone LMS is Dead

Dan Pontefract

This is the nuclear fault of the LMS itself and of anitquated thinking from our learning leaders; it encourages standalone learning by driving people to register for an event … be it an ILT class or an eLearning module. But … to change the culture, you also need to drive an organization to believe that training does not only happen in an event (ILT and eLearning) and thus, by keeping the standalone LMS alive and kicking, you exacerbate the issue.

First thing, I went to Google looking for information on how to install new modules in Drupal 5.0. Modules have a name, say, 'foo'. There is a.module file associated with that module, 'foo.module'. There can be (but doesn't have to be) a directory with that same name, 'drupal/modules/foo'. Drupal, when it lists the modules that can be installed, checks the 'modules' directory and any subdirectories for a file called '.module'. module'. Some issues.
