Commentary by Stephen Downes

Steven wrote in to say that "your newsletter has mentioned several free, open source course management systems. Here's another." From the clipping: "The Manhattan Virtual Classroom has been available under the GPL since October, 2000. In use at Western New England College since 1997, Manhattan includes a variety of discussion groups, live chat, areas to post the syllabus, lectures, and other handouts/notices, a module for organizing online assignments and exams, and a self-contained module for private email. Developed entirely in 'C', Manhattan is 100% database-free and is easy to install on a Linux/FreeBSD server, is very fast, and has very modest hardware requirements. A complete teacher's reference manual is available."
