Description

Drupal’s use is exploding in Higher Education. This session will introduce a new Drupal distribution designed to serve as a platform for building rich intranets for educational institutions.

Universities are large complex enterprises. Drupal’s modularity and flexibility make it the perfect platform for building a new social learning environment which “glues” together legacy LMS systems, Student Information Systems, grading systems, and learning happening on 3rd-party tools such as Google Docs, wikis, blogs, micro-blogging platforms such as Twitter, and so on.

I’ve been working on Eduglu for the past two years as a student at Brigham Young University and am now releasing it to the world and starting a company to provide commercial support and hosting.

This session will serve as an introduction to Eduglu.

How we build and maintain Eduglu.
Eduglu’s current functionality and roadmap for the next year.
Where your help is needed to make Eduglu thrive.
What needs a tool like Eduglu fulfills.
And why Eduglu is the perfect base for your next social learning project.

We’ll walk through the basic steps of installing and setting up an Eduglu website.
