Submission + - Choosing F/OSS distance education tools

SgtChaireBourne 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.
