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

Meetup in Rhodes Tower on the campus of Cleveland State University.
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.
My company offers a six-week intensive online course (live) on building sites in Drupal 7
We do a lot of work building sites for Universities (Upenn, Temple, others) and have had a number of people from various universities take the course.
Schools qualify for the ten percent discount available to nonprofits and we also offer steeper discounts if 3 or more people from the same school take the course.
If anyone is interested in learning more, please feel free to contact me.
Do you offer remote access to your Drupal Meetups?
I started a group in hopes of getting Meetups with remote access listed in one place and bringing people from all over the world to your local meetups.
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.Read more
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?
The Open Learning Exchange (OLE) is developing an open-source digital library (Basic e-Learning Library, aka BeLL) for use in basic education programs for young children in Africa, Asia and Latin America. The 12-volt BeLL system is designed to function off-line in remote locations as well as online where Internet connections are available. The goal is to enable unsophisticated users in remote regions of developing nations to synchronize their local library systems, including locally developed resources, with their national BeLL system.Read more

Thanks to everyone who attended the first VoIP Drupal session yesterday (3/20) at Drupal Con Denver!
If you are attending the event, I'd highly encourage you to join us for today's hands-on session at 2:15pm in room 212 (http://denver2012.drupal.org/bof/voip-drupal-hands-session)
