Dan Mitchell at DeAnza College adds another nugget to this day of highly relevant posts in my aggregator:
A basic and easy web-based content-management system is a first priority. Most faculty members simply need to create a few web pages that can quickly and easily be updated, and possibly post some other file types for downloading. Frontier from Userland (and its Manila component) is the one I am most familiar with. Yes, it is a “blogging” tool, but it does a lot more than that, and I can vouch for the ease with which faculty can adopt this solution.
Me too. My teachers are sailing along with Manila right now.
