Hello everybody,

I just got pointed to this and thought you might find this as
interesting as I do:

        A list to help schools find open source alternatives to
        proprietary software applications was published earlier this
        week by OSS Watch, a service for higher and further education
        institutions in the UK. Introducing the list, OSS Watch
        development manager Mark Johnson says: "Where possible, we’ve
        included real-world examples of their usage."

        The list is divided in seven education areas, such as
        E-Learning, Assessment and Classroom Tools. In the E-Learning
        section, for example, it lists Moodle, Sakai and Canvas as
        open source alternatives. "The Manchester Metropolitan
        University selected Moodle after an extensive review", OSS
        Watch adds, adding a link to a 2010 report by the university.
