Tablet PC Course Content Management Software


Mark Payton of the Tablet PC project at Vermont Academy encourages school personnel looking for course content management software to consider Moodle.

… especially those schools that are using or looking at Tablet PCs. The price can’t be beat. The feature set is solid. Development is active and well-managed. There is good support from the community. You get the source code so you can tweak it. The folks at Agilix (makers of GoBinder) are working on an interface between Moodle and GoBinder, so there are even better things coming.

I’m cautious about passing on recommendations. This one, however, I’d consider. Mark has a reputation as an informed, judicious professional.

Thanks for the suggestion, Mark. Many of us appreciate your progress reports.
