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.

Charles Jennings

Why would you put greater trust in someone who worked for a store with a vested interest not only in encouraging you to buy from them, but also to buy the products that gave them the highest return? Yesterday another great British institution slid into the history books.

Less is more: A different approach to L&D in a world awash with information

Content as a Service


As instructional designers, we create our learning products, package them up with all the content and media, wish them well, and ship them off to the LMS’s – never to be seen again. With a library of granular learning assets at your fingertips, you can create content assembly applications that let your users assemble their own learning products by searching, selecting, and sequencing content into new eLearning courses, ePubs, Common Cartridges, QTI assessments, and more.

I had designed OLe so that it used free-standing 'modules', and the IMS-LOM was perfect for this. They are now standard parts of LMSs, widely used in educational institutions (as a quick Google search will show), and invaluable to students for job applications, especially in creative fields.

Business or Pleasure? - why not both: Larry's magic numbers - bite.

Martijn Linssen

What's important is the absolute $ spend, the breadth of product range on which its spent, and how much results in free-on-upgrade enhancements vs new products. Yes, I know, JDE customers are supposed to get "like-for-like" access to Fusion modules.

A New Website, Part Two - Choosing Drupal

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

However, Perl systems, like, say, Scoop , typically require the installation of Perl modules, which requires the cooperation of the server administrator - in other words, my hosting service. 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. The Drupal modules. And for some of the special stuff I will need I can write my own Drupal module.

Where I am making reference to SenseMaker™ modules I indicate them in a different font and colour, like this.
