Title:	Large-Scale Open Source E-Learning Systems at Open University UK 
(ID: ERB0812)

This ECAR research bulletin examines the factors leading to the 
selection of the open source learning management system at the Open 
University, details the many aspects of development work that had to be 
undertaken, and describes the issues involved for institutions 
participating in an open source community. It also looks at some of the 
many business and cultural challenges the institution has faced, and at 
how faculty are being encouraged to move toward a model of education 
incorporating increasing amounts of e-learning content and activity.
