Welcome to the Drupal in Education group. This group is an umbrella group for supporting and discussing the various uses of Drupal in educational settings.
List of education institutions using Drupal.

We are very happy to introduce you to the latest and greatest features of the VoIP Drupal platform!
As part of this webinar, you will learn about VoIP Drupal, a new open source framework that makes it easy to build websites that almost literally pick-up the phone, make calls, record messages, broadcast audio, and more.Read more
I am building a website where I need a Forum for a community and I wanted to extend the Drupal Core Forum's functionality but as I am new to drupal i am getting very confused and so Could anyone help me??? please...
Well I don't know if it is necessary as I have never used Core Forum before so I don't really now what it looks like, but I suppose it comes with the installation.
The forum would need to let people who wants to post content or reply to a thread to have a registered account ie they'd need to log in. However the content will have to be visible to the public.Read more

These session proposals are for the Drupal in Education Unconference.
Put session proposals below. Please include a description of what you would like to discuss.
Session Idea: Supporting Teacher Professional Development
What are some of the components of a successful professional development program? How can Drupal be set up to support teachers as they continue to grow professionally, and teacher supervisors as they help teachers develop through their careers?
Session Coordinator: Bill Fitzgerald
Stephen Gracey will be talking about Content Strategy and presenting a case study of its practical application in Drupal.
See his comments on the event page on meetup for more info.
We'd like to have a couple short (5-10 minute) demos related to this topic after Stephen's talk, to showcase approaches to content strategy in Drupal. Anyone have a tried-and-true technique or an innovative solution to share? Then we'll open it up for discussion.Read more
Last Spring I gave a presentation at our state educational technology conference on using Drupal for a school website. I wanted to make the presentation available for anyone to use as a starting point if you need to put something similar together. These are just the slides, so if you're familiar with Drupal they should make sense, but they do not work well without someone explain things as you go along.Read more

Our first meetup at Cleveland State University!
We have two presentations on the schedule:
Building a Website with Drupal: "How You Can Build a Flexible Website Powered with Free Drupal Software", presented by Darrell Ulm, aimed at those new to Drupal,
Writing your first Drupal module, presented by David Makalsky, geared toward those wanting to start developing in Drupal.

We're exploring the idea of using Drupal for a university-wide ePortfolio system. The feature set certainly looks like it's there (custom content types could organize different page templates. Other modules could help facilitate collaboration and communication). The big question for us is its scalability. Would we be able to scale Drupal to 50,000 to 100,000 student sites? Conceptually each student would have their own mini-site to showcase their content.
Any recommendations on the way this could be architected?
Thanks for any input you can provide.
