Educause Report on Large-Scale Open-Source LMS at Open University

http://connect.educause.edu/library/ERB0812

Niall Sclater of the Open University, UK, reports on their adoption of Moodle in an Educause Research Bulletin (attached).

This could be considered a companion piece to the Educause report “Web 2.0, Personal Learning Environments, and the Future of Learning Management Systems” by the same author.  There are some interesting ideas in the OU’s Moodle, including non-course interest areas, but as is seen in the other paper, sociological concerns about adoption limit the harnessing of innovation.
