WordPress.com as OpenCourseWare: Link to and discussion of using WordPress.com and consequently WordPress, as a platform for low cost, highly searchable and taggable OpenCourseWare type applications. The example blog is about blogs, wikis and such and might be an interesting read by itself. I have personally used the various iteration of educational CMSs such as WebBoard and WebCT and they have left enough to be desired that I have come running back to my beloved WordPress and bbPress to setup private blogs and forums for use by my classmates. Thanksgoes out to the work done by various educators around the world who are making good use of WordPress and thanks to Stephen for the news.

    Here’s a somewhat-related plugin I found on WP Codex recently

    Hmm … this comes at a perfect time. I was looking for something like this, and these packages might just solve my problems.

    Thanks!

    I can’t believe no one mentioned Edublogs.org. :)

    I also use WordPress to publish lessons, chess lessons to be more precise. But since the number of lessons increased about 50 I am using a static page for the main navigation between the lessons in addition to the In Series plugin.
    I think WordPress works rather fine for this kind of applications

    +1 for http://edublogs.org as well. While it’s the same platform, using wp.com for this might cause issues with some school’s policies as a simple click might drop a student into another blog with adult content.

    I agree that as a CMS WebBoard is nowhere near as good as WordPress so you are preaching to the converted here. I know which camp I’m in!
