rSmart Offers First IBM-Enabled Open Source Application for Education
Does anyone yet use a courseware / education mangement solution to track students use of online apps? Could an app supply a service which reports students game/quiz results back to the instructor's systems?

The key part of this article is the Sakai Project course management framework (Open Source) begun at Michigan (ack-spptt...&#$%! Wolverines). Sakai also has a nice Sakaipedia (Wiki) for support, and it even includes a section on Pedagogy.

Also, RSmart has a white paper: Open source - opens learning__Why open source makes sense for education. Includes a list of academic related OSS projects.
