Anybody building elearning apps with Rails


#1

Hello

I’m new to rails (just boarded the Train a week ago). I’ve been an
elearning developer for about 10 years and for the last couple of years
have solely concentrated on adding tools to a proprietary Learning
Management System built in Coldfusion. …But I’m also a Java and


developer.

I am keen to start an open source rails inspired project to build the
generation learning and teaching system. I don’t want to use the term
“Learning Management System” as these systems are too big and management
focussed to be useful. I am much more interested in using Rails and Ajax
to build learning tools.

Anyway just wondering if anybody else is using rails to build learning
tools.

Take Care

Hi - I’m not exactly developing a learning tool at the moment, but I’m
in
the same ballpark - FreeMIS is an open source school MIS. I’ve found
Rails
really productive!
