I'm helping a technical university that is interested in teaching Drupal development courses. What's the best way to find information about classes being offered at different places (distance and face-to-face), sample course structures and the like?
Thanks in advance,
Drupal camps have been very valuable sources for learning many things from Gigs and also update with new stuff. Its really useful to watch videos/slides after the camp is done but everyone having different names based on their group, year which really confuse a lot, I mean they can any name they want but the site name for all the Drupal camps I feel should be consistent so I don't need to track or search for it.
My suggestion is:
Through our platform and services, we provide access to teaching tools that can be standardized across the board and learning tools that can be individualized.

I am an instructor in an on-line course. When I use Quiz, I have to turn off the feedback setting because I do not want my students to see the feedback until ALL the students have taken the quiz.
I also use manual scoring to avoid having students see the correct answers before everyone has taken the quiz. But - when I use manual scoring I lose the ability to show students the correct answer. And when I turn off the feedback setting, I lose the ability to explain to the students why they got something wrong.
Is there a way to control the time when feedback is provided so that students see the feedback AFTER I've scored the quiz?
Is there a way for me to manually add comments and provide feedback when I'm scoring a quiz?Read more

I released video module 7.x-2.1-alpha2 version on 11th of Sep. This major version completely redesign the video module and its core, I'm the only one worked on this release and seems our co-maintainers (6.x) had no time to contribute code to the 7.x yet. I'm very very happy about the progress of downloading and using video module. It has over 10,500+ usage now.
In this article I'm going to examine some new features added to the video module.Read more

I am setting up a small website to handle classes and grades. At the moment the process works as follows:
- create a new role: eg 'Grade 1 - 2011'
- allocate users to the role
- create a new node of type 'Class' (eg English). Select from the CCK field drop down the role that this class is for. Eg Grade 1 - 2011.
- all the users who have the role 'Grade 1 - 2011' are now part of the class 'English'. Users in a grade do not need to be split between different classes.
I have to develop a site that can support multisite with drupal, my basic needs are
1) Main site can create the other site with different database
2) The site created from Main site can handle custom modules and themes.
