Good post from Terry Anderson looking at the hosting choices facing any institution that is looking at installing (free and open source) LMS software such as Moodle:
1. Hosting Behind the Garden Wall - hosting behind the password protection of the institution -
2. Hosting in the Front Yard - hosting by the institution, but allowing access, visibility and comments from outside the institutional community.
3. Hosting on the Commons, or in Someone Else's Yard - hosting by external commercial or non profit hosts.
The discussion comes from the recent Canada Moodle Moot, slide shows for which are available on SlideShare. And related: Alec Couros's keynote at the Moodle Moot.
