I love rabbit-holes. Here's one. This post announces that Spectrum has gone open source. "Spectrum makes it easy to grow safe, successful online communities that are built to last." There's definitely a need for this, so I logged in, created my account, and started exploring. I created a community for MOOCs and joined a one-member community for e-learning. That member, Justin Mutchell, linked to a GitHub repository for something called the Adapt framework, which is supports an "e-learning authoring tool that creates fully responsive, multi-device, HTML5 e-learning content." Here's their showcase. I tried to load the course in a gRSShopper iFrame, but it wasn't happening (maybe because of browser security limitations).
