Edutech Mauritius

I remember having to go look up Mauritius on a map a few years back when I first heard about the learning object repository project that had started there (a PHP-based repository that looks to be steadily growing).

Apparently not content to rest on their laurels for being the smallest (and one of the first) country to have a learning object repository, someone there has decided to innovate further and create Edutech Mauritius, a Drupal-based site offering some free online courses, as well as serving as the hub of a community for “promoting and applying information and communication technologies (ICT) to enhance the educational experience.” I don’t know at all that these two initiaitves have any conntection, but to see both of them come out of this rather small island nation is amazing and impressive. It’s things like this, plus announcements like these, that make me want to focus on getting back to hacking solutions on my own again. – SWL
