    I will have to take your word for that.

    and i want to build a system using the web2.0 tools to assist any teacher to develop easyly his tools.
    Oh I smell communications major all over this one.

    is there another multi user application
    You will have to develop a content strategy with goals and objectives, along with a curriculum, then comes technology. Despite the effusive hope throughout the eduction field, technology does not suggest application -- application suggests technology.

    The CMS can, when well applied and adapted, can serve a teacher well. There is a field of computer based training which can serve well, if focused with a well articulated curriculum and communications expertise.

    Good luck with that.

    Hey "teacher" person, let me introduce you to Blackboard Learn.

    I have no idea whether it fits what you're trying to communicate with the pic, because trust me, you're not communicating.

    ^thanks for posting that. One of my friends is a professor at UMASS and a while back I asked her if she ever thought of using WordPressMU or a Wiki etc. to help connect her students with the course materials. She said "Oh, I have blackboard". In my ignorance I thought she meant as in "chalk", so I said "You don't use a white board?" which elicited quite a laugh.

    I couldn't for the live of me remember its name for some reason though, so there you have it. Give it a try.

    No. And this isn't the place to give a rundown of what works and what doesn't in education for the last decade. Given our exchange to date, I really must suggest a finished application directed at teachers, like Blackboard.

    Bringing a Wordpress or Drupal install to fruition as a working, strategic, application is an undertaking I strongly urge you to never try. A coherent, working project is nothing like what you apparently think it is based upon your sketch.

    There are any number of tried, tested, best practices for educators. You can rest assured posting in a forum and expecting to get your homework done by others is not among them.

    Read. Learn. There's a good teacher.
