Great Job.

The project nipping at the heels of LON-CAPA, Moodle, has some good
functionality for liberal arts and social sciences.  It doesn't have the
power of LC but it is very easy to use although there is no quiz import.
 I have faith that LON-CAPA will get there and surpass all challengers.

BTW I may be presenting on LON-CAPA at the FALL Educause Conference. 
I'll keep you informed.

Looking forward to 1.0.

After a rather gloomy and very depressing day struggling with unhappy 
and complaining users - Jeremy found this:


Guy translated some of the codes:

> Scalability    - 5
> Openness       - 5
> Administration - 4
> Implementation - 3
> Functionality  - 4
> Effectiveness  - 3

A 4 was the highest they gave for functionality (tied with ATutor), and

a 24 overall score was the highest total score they gave (tied with 

The following is probably very fair:

"LON-CAPA is long on functionality and support for extended character 
sets and computation, but it's a bit short on user friendliness."

The review goes on:

"It is a robust system built for enterprise scalability and handles 
clustering well. This system is highly recommended as one of the most 
promising candidates for providing traditional course management 
functionality for large institutions. LON-CAPA is an active participant

in the standards movement and provides strong documentation and 
development support."

Now let's get the @$%# bugs out of the system ... release 1.0 is coming

dangerously close.
