A place to discuss Drupal in Higher Education
This Group is a split-off of the Drupal Education Group and aims ito deal with issues and challenges that are unique to Drupal in post-secondary academic environments. This group has been founded as a result of Drupalcon San Francisco 2010 when it became obvious that there was a need for a place to extend the fruitful discussions that began there.
Just a quick community note about some momentum in projects that often times directly benefit the drupal edtech community.
LTI is moving along in the community it seems -- http://drupal.org/sandbox/jzornig/1809350

Example LTI compliant LMSs are Blackboard Learn, Moodle and Sakai.
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?

Are you an educator teaching Drupal at college level? Do you know an educator who'd like to teach Drupal?
I'm trying to reach educators who are teaching Drupal as subject matter at college level.
