VoIP Drupal at the World Bank

Today the World Bank published a nice blog entry highlighting the use of VoIP Drupal to support good governance, social inclusion and citizen engagement:

http://blogs.worldbank.org/edutech/checkmyschool-voipdrupal

That blog was the outcome of a presentation that I did on May 2, 2012 to representatives from the World Bank, IDB and other organizations who work in education, eGovernance and related areas. For slides and additional information about that talk, have a look at: http://go.worldbank.org/XM1D7VZE10

Grouping Content

I want to create a simple e learning experience and am using organic groups as the hub for everything. I was wondering is there a way to group content in an organic group? For instance, everything in week one will be grouped in week one posts, polls, videos ect.

Getting Help in the Drupal Community

I've been thinking a lot about what the major hurdles are to learn Drupal. One obstacle I've encountered is even learning how to ask questions effectively in the forums and how to interact with the community. Someone posted this article How to Ask Questions from Hackers and it really helped me understand how community supported help systems work and what info I should include in my questions. However, the tone in that article is a little harsh and I think we could make a friendlier version that's more Drupal Community specific.

Library website

We're in the middle of building a new drupal website and I'm wondering how to best handle integration with library database searches.

Our current (ancient) library website: http://departments.oxy.edu/library/ is using asp to route the search. Are there any modules or best practices for doing this in drupal? My guess is it would be something using PHP whether a module or custom?

Thanks,
Becky
