I’m running a website powered by WordPress and consider it being one-fits-all solution. Came across http://goo.gl/UWIR27. Looks cool! Hopefully, you’ll find it useful. Regards…]]>
But when it comes to personal blogs, I would prefer WP, as its simpler and easy to do stuffs like posting, editing and doesn’t require expertise.]]>
A course contains information. A cohort contains students.
Create x amount of cohorts and add the students to them.
This allows you to use cohort sync with a course.
When a student joins, add them to the cohort.
When they leave, remove them.
This change is pushed though to the course because it is synced with the cohort.
It is best to use a program to sync your cohort additions/removal with your MIS system.
That is how we have done it and it works really well.

As of WordPress 3.51, there is very little that can’t be done in WordPress (with a small number of plugins). It comes down to what you know and what your users want to use.]]>
It really depends, if you want to do any integrations. If all you want is some pages for library users to read and all the actual work is done on the OPAC, then WordPress is fine. But if you want integration, then Drupal would be the one to go for. I’m sure you already know about the group of Drupal users in the library world: http://groups.drupal.org/libraries.]]>
Tried Hang out on air, had a few issues with lag (about a 10 second delay), but overall like it a lot. If I can find a simple solution to add chat functionality to it, than I think I will use it more.
So, the search continues for that perfect platform at a right price.]]>
