This isn't directly linux related, but i know that many people on this
list are staff/students at ANU and so must have had to interact with
the giant lump of turd that goes by the name of WebCT. I'm a student
and i can't stand the damn thing, so i was thinking about trying to
push the administration to change to moodle (which is an
Australian-based open source course ware system). Now i know that will
be an uphill battle hence why I'm writting here.

First, does anyone actually like WebCT? i just want to make sure that
it isn't just me, my friends and my lecturers that loathe it.

Second, does anyone have any experience with moodle? I've looked at
the website and some reviews and stuff and it looks pretty spiffy but
i don't have any actual experience with it.

Third, are other people intrested trying to do some open source advocacy?

Four, where (if others are interested) would we start? Does anyone
(specifically staff) have any knowledge or thoughts about which bits
of the bureaucracy are involved in such decision.
