New Book: Drupal in Education and E-Learning

Bill Fitzgerald, of FunnyMonkey, has written Drupal for Education and E-learning, expected from Packt Publishing October 2008.

Social media in the classroom provide unique opportunities for teaching and learning.

This book helps you break through the hype, and shows you how to build a site in Drupal that incorporates the Web in your class, on your terms, to achieve specific learning goals.
The book focuses around creating educational activities in Drupal, with lots of examples of realistic courses and classroom ideas – and how to implement them.
I could not have been written this book without the support and help of
fellow primates Marc Poris and Jeff Graham.
Also, Peter Wolanin and Michael Peacock, two of the technical editors, gave me some great feedback that helped during the revision process.
