[ubuntu-uk] influence in education

This really is quite new. For those familiar with phpbb3 (The free forum
software that I know is popualr), there is a project being developed at
is from one of the American Universities. I have been in touch with that
team and the project is not dormant. Far from it, they are approaching a new
major release.

The goal, as they state is to make it easy to keep updated. I was also
really pleased to read and discuss with them that it is not only HTML code
and CSS compliant but it also generates code which is WAI compliant as well.
A free web-building tool, easy to update for non-techincal people that is
compliant across all the areas has really perked my interest up in it.

I have now downloaded it onto my server area and am really looking forward
to giving it a really good check.

Being as it is php based, it will be very easy to do 'local' amendments (as
we can in phpbb). If anyone is interested in more details, please feel free
to drop me a mail. Just please bear in mind I'm really new to it as well!

>From my, albeit, fairly brief reading of it - it does seem to work similarly
to net-objects did (many years ago). setting up a generic school template
should not take too long and the slotting in of images etc would be a breeze
