target audience?

This is tagged as administrator and is mainly technical. Should we start another page for teachers / non-techies or put it all into one page? Also an interesting thread is starting here: http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=44032

The target audience has to be the people who make the decisions to support a product, not just teachers and Administrators, but also accountants and managers. Talk in their language.--Colin Fraser 16:36, 15 July 2011 (WST)

Export SCORM content

Hello. In this article in the section interoperability it says that mport/export of Reusable Learning Objects packaged according to the SCORM / IMS Content Packaging standards is possible. In "Adding/editing a SCORM" [1] it says that SCORM content cannot be created by Moodle. Which information is correct? Thanks.

Could there be a new topic, Adaptability

As the processes of education change, and as teachers become more adept at using the technology, I suggest that Moodle will also adapt. Unlike a number of high profile proprietal LMS', Moodle does not rely upon committee, then review then waiting for the next version. The continual updating process can mean change is introduced incrementally and in a short period larger adaptations can occur.

Business Consideration

It is easy to forget that the end decisions about product purchases are often made by some hard headed business people steeped in a particular business culture. To break the hold of proprietal systems we can do what they have always done, call into question the longer term effectiveness of a product. Open Source is not subjected to the same provisions as proprietal softwate, in terms of profitability - for example. This means a lot of undiluted, enthusiastic support that can be translated into huge advantages. Moodle supporters need to make it clear there are a lot of serious business advantages in selecting an Open Source product over proprietal and spell them out - something that has never been done before that I can see.

The language used may be a little sloppy, so do not hesitate to edit it as needed. --Colin Fraser 16:34, 15 July 2011 (WST)
