University of Canberra moves to Moodle

Allan Christie from Netspot sent me a copy of their "Moodle & Sakai News for Enterprise-Level Education", which has a few interesting items on Australian universities working with e-learning products. They point out that University of Canberra has decided to replace Web CT with Moodle. and USQ is using Wimba with Moodle.

Replacing Web CT with Moodle is a sensible move, but a difficult one (apart from the technical changes, Moodle looks less glossy than Web CT). I am not sure how much integration would be needed, or possible between Wimba and Moodle, as
Wimba is a real time audio, video application and Moodle is a mostly text based stored message sort of application. Apart from just having a hypertext link to start up Wimba from within Moodle, I am not sure what other integration would be needed, or possible.

hi Tom,
readers of your blog can visit http://www.wimba.com/products/integration_moodle.php to learn more about the Moodle module for Wimba. There's a recorded demo via this link. NetSpot as a Moodle partner works with Wimba to maintain the integration and would be happy to support any organisation seeking to investigate the possibility.
Kind Regards,
Steve Watt
