(This is going out on several channels. Apologies if you get more than one copy.)
There are many Web sites and tools for authoring textbooks: iBooks Author, Flat World Knowledge, etc. Good tech, but there's a fundamental flaw in their specs. They're based on an obsolete view of learning.
Education researchers have shown how we can help students learn STEM skills (STEM: science, tech, engineering and math). Deep learning, formative feedback, other things. We need to redesign authoring software based on these research findings.Read more
http://www.drupalcampnj.org/ is a Drupal Camp held at an educational institution. In my mind, there had better be a lot of Drupal in education fans there! Planting this flag in the ground to let others know I'm going but mostly to provide an initial discussion thread as to what topics people would like to cover in BoFs at the event.Read more

EduERP is student and staff adminstration software for educational institutions. It is available for download and immediate use.

For contributing to Drupal, are there any organizations out there that ask individual developers to use an organizational Git account (vs. a personal Git account) to make commits to projects? Are organizational accounts common in the Drupal community? Why or why not?
If you do use an organizational account, how do you (or they, if speaking of another org.) go about managing multiple Git identities on the local environment? Would you do this by just committing as yourself to internal projects and then committing as the org. account to a contributed project?Read more
