Open source case study sharing solution..
Thanks to Bill Traynor of the discuss mailing list for pointing out this excellent example of an online collection of case studies. These particular ones relate to the application of open source to education. Submissions from around the world demonstrate its versitile, creative and sensible application to real-world school situations. I’m always impressed at the energy and committment of open source devotees in extending their experience and skills to others.
The implementation applies equally well to other areas. An HTML form feeds a back end database. In the middle there is an editorial control layer for reviewing and approving materials. the simple design leads to submissions that are easily viewed and reviewed. Lack of a search feature or some display controls will, however, hamper access if the contributions exceed a manageable number.
