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.Read more
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.Read more
Bosire, a teacher of English. Teachers all up to children aged 18 yrs (A levels). I have been using Joomla, PHP, CSS, for years for 5 years now. I have used drupal for 6 months and I have a small drupal website www.tradehalls.com, but I am currently developing it. I am interested in teaming up with themers and developers to come up with solutions that can make online learning fun and very interactive.

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