For anyone interested in a cost effective local government centric learning and social media platform you should take a look at what we’ve been doing in the UK over the past 5 years with Learning Pool. We use the Moodle open source platform (I see Blackboard have been acquiring Moodle houses like billy-o over the past few weeks) which we’ve heavily tailored for local government use and so far 700,000 public servants have registered & used resources from our tried & tested shared environment.
Over 250 UK local authorities are members of the Learning Pool community & we’re now expanding beyond local government & into other parts of the public sector.
You can take a look yourselves at http://www.learningpool.com
It’s free to join the community & you don’t need to buy anything to participate in our sharing environment & forums.
