    [rails] Open Source Project Advice

    hi all,

    i have an idea that i want to develop and open source. it is a learning framework. basically, i'll store 1 category, a question, 1 right answer, 3 wrong answers and 1 explanation of the right answer in a database.

    a teacher would be able to input the appropriate material and then his/her students would have access to the questions, the answers and the explanations.

    the student would be able to to pick a category, decide how many of the total questions they'd like to get in a "study block" and then they answer the questions, see the right answer and explanation if they are wrong, and get a score at the end.

    wash, rinse repeat until the student basically owns the material.

    i took this style of learning to pass a real estate exam and it well. i started at around 50% but ended up near 100%. i took the test, was the first one done (out of 100+) and passed (50% failed).

    anyway, i'm looking for any insight how to get such a project started. does rubyforge take on such projects?

    i think it would be pretty cool and the learning framework could be applied to just about anything.

    you could also go with sf.net or tigris.

    sf.net is pretty easy to get accepted.

    My wife's a teacher, so let me know if and when you get a project up and I'll help out where I can.
