 * I'd suggest that this is split up in milestones. We've attempted something similar before, but it's really too big and hairy for one release. For natty, I'd suggest that moodle, schooltool, etc gets packaged properly first, and then a meta-package for these should be created that installs everything and make sure (somehow) that everything is installed and configured properly. In my opinion, full fledged installation media for what we'll have in natty will be overkill. --JonathanCarter

Blueprint page for the "School Server in a Box" Edubuntu Server idea.

Summary

This blueprint is to help coordinate the work around the Edubuntu Server installer/application. The concept is a single installer that would let a school setup an Edubuntu Server that included: "moodle, schooltool, koha and perhaps even some centralised authentication using something like gosa" (quote from highvoltage), exact apps to be discussed at UDS-N. The idea is to get "a school environment running really fast, cheap and easy (a combination of 3 that's hard to get)."

Launchpad link: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/school-server-in-a-box

Moodle - Learning Management System Open SIS - Student Information System SchoolTool - Administration tools; gradebooks, attendance openLDAP Koha ? Gosa ? SugarCRM - customer relationship manager, useful for tracking alumni, vendors, funding sources Shibboleth - http://shibboleth.internet2.edu/ single sign-on across organizational boundaries
