Just noticed a Drupal for Education event going on at Sun’s offices in London, on 14th May:
The event is organised by Codepositive, Sun, and Acquia, and seems to be part of a series of ‘Drupal for…’ events. The last one I went to was Drupal for Enterprise, and was pretty useful – especially for those who didn’t know anything about Drupal and wanted to get a good overview.
Interestingly, they mention on the event page that the Open University is now using Drupal for its new Platform site:
This bills itself as a ‘virtual campus’ social networking and news site for staff, students, and alumni. They even have blogs, although they’ve seemingly gone for Drupal-based blogs rather than the WordPress MU we’ve chosen for blogs.kent.
