New Book: Drupal for Education and E-Learning

Hello, all,

At the risk of indulging in shameless promotion, I wanted to announce that I wrote a book on using Drupal in Education -- I have an announcement on d.o about it, but I also wanted to post here to get the word out.

The book is titled Drupal for Education and E-learning, and it's due out from Packt Publishing in late October. The book targets Drupal 6, and it's geared toward non-developers and site admins.

Adopting Drupal as a learning tool within K12

I came across this thread recently, titled "Moodle as 'the killer app'" -- the author of the original post is Wes Fryer, a very respected edtech blogger.

Also, at the risk of stating the obvious, I don't see Drupal and Moodle as competing within education -- there are things Drupal does well, there are things Moodle does well, and when faced with a choice you use the best tool for the job.

Interesting presentation/thread on universities using Drupal

From Dries' blog: http://buytaert.net/many-universities-use-drupal

It includes an embedded presentation by Paul Albert of Cornell University on adopting Drupal. Also, the comment thread is worthwhile reading.

Cheers,

Bill

easy way to upload photos into posts?

I'm looking for an "easy-peasy" way to put photos into posts. Since I work mostly with middle school students, it's got to be pretty simple. They're all used to finding a browse button, and hitting upload or something similar.

I have tried the image_assist module, the image module, and the IMCE module. All with TinyMCE editor. The closest one is the ICME, but that still takes about 3 more steps than I'd like.

I'm posting here because I figured some here would understand the middle school mind!

I'm using Drupal 5.7.

Thanks!
