Plone is an open source content management system (CMS) that has won a wide following for its ease of use and functionality. This article describes one of the advantages of open source: it allows people to innovate in ways not considered by the original designers. Hence, eduplone is the same CMS platform rigged to work with learning objects. Specifically, Plone's workflow engine can be used to export using IMS learning design specification. This is a nice step forward in content authoring. "The Plone system itself makes the process of authoring content rather simpler than what is typical in the SCORM world. Eduplone learning sequences presume just two people with moderate technical skill sets. SCORM presumes a team of experts in instructional design, web coding, graphical design, subject experts etc."
