The 'Steve' in the previous post is Steve Hargadon, who reports on an interview with Michelle Moore about Moodle on EdTechLive, his new weekly podcast of interviews. Moore conducted three sessions about Moodle at the Open Source Lab at NECC 2006, and as Hargadon reports, all three were packed. Hargadon writes, "As we talked, I was reminded of the impact that Moodle is having in introducing free and open source software to the education market. Michelle tells the story of her husband, as a district technology director, saw Moodle change the whole story with regard to the use of open source software--previously, he had met resistance in implementing open source solutions, but with Moodle there was a huge push from the users to make it available."
