Submission + - Using SlashCode in education?

MikeTheGreat writes: A recent posting to Slashdot got me thinking about technology in the classroom, and reminded me of a question that I've wanted to ask for a while: is anyone using the Slashdot code base (called Slashcode) in an educational setting?
I can see an unmodified local instance being used in much the way that Slashdot is (to publicize & discuss topics, typically news articles), but I'd be even more interested in finding out about people using the underlying technologies (like meta-moderation) with a front-end set up to better allow for discussions of topics that need to be persistent throughout the term.
So — is anyone using Slashcode in education?
