Managing blended learning and curriculum libraries across multiple languages

Is anyone already doing this in Drupal?
What services, tool, modules, other resources are you using?
Might you be interested in a Drupal Learning Project?

I had an amazing trip to Cambodia in January of 2010 working with Teachers Across Borders (http://teachersacrossborders.org.au) and considering solutions for professional development for in-service teachers.

We hope to eventually find a way to build a Drupal installation profile to support blended learning and cataloging of learning materials, particularly focusing on lesson plans and classroom materials across multiple languages.

Curriculum and Certifications

I'm curious what folks think about how Curriculum relates to Certifications.

I think the two often go hand-in-hand, but they don't always.

Are certifications related to curriculum?

And if so, what do the folks in this group think about certifications?

I've obviously got my own thoughts on certification programs in response to previous discussion on the consulting list, but this is a different venue with some different goals and perspectives than the consulting folks.

Is there some overlap between Curriculum Mapping and Open Media Project's management of controlled metadata vocabularies?

As a part of the Curriculum and Training Group, we have a work group exploring possible solutions for mapping Drupal production roles / job functions to competencies and to learning content. The objective may ultimately be to build a new module that will allow for the easy collection of topics and sub-topics across all curriculum and learning content, as well as a mechanism for managing and distributing such records. (Curriculum and Training Group: http://groups.drupal.org/curriculum-and-training)

A DITA documentation distribution for Drupal

Introduction

A couple of weeks ago we launched Modulecraft an awareness & fund-raising project that aims to rally Drupal professionals around a shared effort to create the ultimate toolset for Drupal business. The first fundraising round has as goal the development of a documentation distribution for Drupal that uses a similar approach as the localization server and that enables a distributed/federated documentation architecture for the Drupal project. As a Drupal user you'll be able to get a set of documentation from the drupal.org docs server imported into your own site. You will than be able to edit it and build subsets of the documentation for your own projects. You'll also be able to submit topics that were edited or created by you on your own infrastructure and add them as suggestions to the Drupal documentation server.

The following is a first proposal for the specification of the Documentation system we want to build as part of the modulecraft project. It is by no means complete, and it strongly needs your feedback. This is our first encounter with DITA and our ideas should really be proof checked by technical writers that have extensive experience using DITA. It also contains some proposes a somewhat exotic usage of RDFa, feedback is also very much needed here. In the coming days I'll be adding new sections to the specification here. This is a wiki so be bold! You can add comments either here or at the original posts on the Pronovix blog. I'll be incorporating feedback into this wiki.
