Drupal in Education -- Lullabot Podcast

Last week, I had the chance to talk with Jeff Robbins at Lullabot about using Drupal in Education. This conversation has been unleashed upon an unsuspecting world in the form of Drupal Podcast 66: Bill Fitzgerald & Drupal For Education. It's a pretty free ranging, mildly technical discussion of some of the different ways that Drupal can be used within different educational contexts.

I spend a fair amount of time talking about using Drupal in Education, and every time, I am struck by the different niches Drupal can fill within educational organizations, ranging from courseware to portfolios to constituent management to online magazines and newspapers to public facing web sites, and other uses in between. And as I have these conversations I realize, again and again, that using Drupal in Education is difficult to approach as a unified topic, as each of the sites listed in the previous sentence has a unique set of needs, and therefore a unique set of design requirements.

Anyways.

It was great to be able to talk with Jeff, and thanks to him and the folks at Lullabot for making some space in their podcast lineup to talk Education.

I've been telling my colleagues at work to listen to it carefully as there were so many interesting topics discussed.

I just wish there could be a bunch of follow-up podcasts to go into more depth, like the integration of Dublin Core and Drupal taxonomy, etc..

That's not a bad idea ... not a bad idea at all!

just to say my school started using drupal this semester for the computer science department, so its happening!

Hi Bill. Had you used Moodle or another LMS in your previous teaching career that you thought was inadequate? Did this lead you to pursuing a Drupal solution? I think Drupal would scale well to meet the needs of enterprise systems like Black Board and Moodle. Is that the direction you are heading?

Thank you.

It would be nice to say someday, "Drupal is the new Moodle".

The power of the node!

I love Drupal community for their dedication & development in Drupal features,so Drupal podcast is an excellent addition to the list.
