Education

+ - Choosing F/OSS distance education tools

Submitted by SgtChaireBourne
SgtChaireBourne (457691) writes "A lot of the all-in-one distance education systems are expensive, poorly done, or both. Distance education makes heavy use of text-based chat, shared whiteboards (including the ability to display PDF and OpenDocument), and conference calls with recording and playback. Many of these have been available for ages, individually, as Free or open source software.

Which F/OSS tools or components would be most suitable, either individually or combined, for distance education and why?"
