I'be always thought Wordpress can be used as a content curation tool as blog posts can sign post students to learning resources elsewhere on the web. This plugin looks like it will make this even easier.
David Hopkins posts a list of snippets of news he's collected from around the Internet over the last few months about WordPress, it’s ability to run as an alternative VLE/LMS/etc, and tools you can use to make it work as one.
If you thought WordPress was just blogging software, it’s time to take a second look. The latest version of WordPress is robust enough to help you create anything from a classroom blog to an advanced online course system complete with interactive quizzes and payment portals. Not too shabby.
