    Anyone come across dotlrn?

    Just had this email from a colleague:

    I don't know if any of you have come across this?
    http://dotlrn.org/

    This appears to be a hugely comprehensive managed learning environment
    application. Open Source of course! Have a look at the product summary
    page to get a feel for what it can do http://dotlrn.org/product/

    Also there are some good Flash demos of many of the applications at
    http://www.dotlrn.org/demos-dotlrn/

    There is an internationalisation package for UK English, but not Cymraeg so
    far.

    Looks a long way ahead of Moodle to me.

    In terms of technology, this is a bit out of the mainstream. It is based on
    open sourced AOL technology which provides a comprehensive, standardised
    application runtime and development platform. See http://openacs.org/

    Apparently .LRN requires quite a different web server setup and needs
    an Oracle or Postgres database - both more complex database systems to
    setup and manage than MySQL.

    I just want to know why I haven't seen this recomended.
