[berkman] Dries Buytaert: Drupal and sustaining collaborative efforts

David Weinberger

Drupal is an open source content manager, Dries says. Drupal has 10,000+ modules, 300,000 downloads a month, 1.5M Today he’s going to talk about: history, open source, community, the evolution of software, and how to grow and sustain it. Then Open Source Labs in Portland OR offered to house the servers. But, Dries says, this shows a weakness in open source: you suddenly have to raise $3,000 and may not be able to do so.

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'.

Boilerplate links to generic pages (something very common in the module documentation) should be avoided.

What Universities Must Learn About Social Networks

So I am looking at free and open source software. Though that said, even if I had a budget, I would be going down the free and open source route. But because the open source CMSs tend to be better. Opting to go the open source route still left me hundreds of choices. But while it's very similar to Drupal, without the development community there are not as many modules to choose from; I would have to write a lot more code myself.

Its also worth noting that the evidence for the success of scenario planning is largely anecdotal, and the anecdotes are from restricted sources in the main Shell.

( version française ) In recent years I have been working on two major concepts:first, the connectivist theory of online learning, which views learning as anetwork process; and second, the massive open online course, or MOOC, which isan instantiation of that process. This enabled a more fine-grained presentation oflearning content than traditional sources such as textbooks and universitycourses. Second, it created the idea that these content modules orchunks were sharable.
