Because a large percentage of <a href="http://about.eserver.org/EServer">EServer</a> "members":/Membership are part of the teaching profession, since 1994 we have offered free course websites for the members of our community. All EServer members "level 2 and above":/Membership may create course websites online for their teaching.
<a href="http://courses.eserver.org/"><img src="/courseware.jpg" alt="Screen shot of courseware system" border="0" /></a>The system is online at <a href="http://courses.eserver.org/">http://courses.eserver.org/</a>
<a href="http://eserver.org/courses/course_management_guide.pdf"><img src="http://eserver.org/courses/manual_cover.jpg" style="float:right;"></a>The [open-source] course management system we use ("Moodle":http://moodle.org/) offers numerous features for sharing readings, coordinating workshops and collaborative student assignments. Our system supports all "SCORM":http://www.adlnet.org/scorm/ educational content (a standard for online educational materials). And the copyright for works distributed through our system remains with the creator--as is not always the case with course management systems provided by employers.
