those of you looking for a great course management system to use in
combination with WeBWorK to post instructional material like lecture
notes, discussion forum, etc., I would strongly recommend the open
source freeware system called Moodle.
The latest version 1.1 of Moodle has many improvements and enhancements
over previous versions, most notably a facility for backing
up/restoring/cloning courses. Moodle is very easy to install and runs
on virtually any platform running a web server and php (just about any
variety of Unix and Windows NT/2000/XP).
Moodle interfaces cleanly and transparently with WeBWorK via interface scripts which I have written (now updated for Moodle 1.1 and WeBWorK 1.9). The following page contains some basic instructions on how this interaction works.
Click on the following link
to view my Moodle course page for my Spring 2003 Calculus II class. To
see the interface with WeBWorK, click on any of the "Do WeBWorK ...
online" links on that page.
